Reboot Pool Master with No VMs Running

No, it will not affect the other servers or the vm's that are running. What it will affect is your ability to connect to the 

pool with XenServer until the pool master comes back up. Fortunately it only takes about 5 minutes or so for a 

server to restart so its not too terribly inconvenient. You can't start VM's either so if its going to be down for a 

long time (like a hardware issue) its best to designate a new master.

Note that you should either transition the pool master to another host first or put the pool master into maintenance mode before it is rebooted or you could run into some issues. The pool master should never be just rebooted from its running state.

As Alan says, other pools will not be affected at all. The only exception I can think of off-hand would be if you had WLB (workload balancing) running on that particular host and it was controlling WLB on other pools.
