Yes. Summary indexes do count toward your total daily indexing volume. From a license perspective summary indexes are no different than the main index. The only indexed data that does not count towards your license are Splunk's own log files.

As of version 4.0.10 and 4.1, summary indexed data DOES NOT count against your license!
