See the topic on How many CAs are required in the CA documentation.

Because this is a distributed ledger, the ordering service should not be part of the same organization as the peers, so you will need separate organizations (and therefore CAs) for your peer organizations and ordering service organization. When multiple organizations contribute nodes to an ordering service, each ordering node would have its own organization CA. All of this separation is crucial for distributed management of the ordering service and channels and defeats the ability of a bad actor to disrupt the network.
