First of all, read this :

Then if you findout that the webserver itself is vulnerable to XSS, which i doubt. 
You might have found a CGI hosted on the server vulnerable to XSS, in any case once you find out for sure, then see if 
that website/CGI is responsible for issuing cookies or for the Authentication of cookies.
If it is not, then your XSS alert is going to be an alert only in your Final Report, and you could say that the 
bad-coding or non-security conscious coding practices have been exercised during coding of CGI's.
