Servo control voltage

Does the control voltage on a servo have to be at the same level as the motor voltage? I am planning to use several different micros to provide the PWM signal for the servos-one micro is 5 volts the other is 3.3. The servo will have it's own supply at 6 volts or more. (I do not want to run the servo...
