Our license is detailed here: https://opendatacommons.org/licenses/odbl/1.0/

You have the right to make a tile server and distribute the tiles (section 3 of the license).

When you display tiles to the public, you must (Section 4.3) "include a notice associated with the [tiles] reasonably calculated to make any Person that uses, views, accesses, interacts with, or is otherwise exposed to the [tiles] aware that Content was obtained from [OpenStreetMap], and that [OpenStreetMap] is available under [the Open Database] License." (I have replaced the words in brackets to clarify the meaning.)

This is generally read as including the requirement that if you distribute the tiles, you may only do so under a license that forces downstream users to also acknowledge the OSM source (e.g. your tiles could be under a "no distribution allowed" license, or under CC-BY, or under GNU FDL, but not CC0/Public Domain).
