In brief: 0-4

If you are drinking it for the vitamin d, you would need 5 quarts to get what is the minimum for most adults, that is 2000 units daily.
If for calcium, each glass has about 300 mg of calcium so intake would depend on your age and sex. It is best to spread out the calcium source because the ingested calcium lasts only 6-12 hours. At low intakes, the body will take it from bone.

In brief: Better get from sun

Fortified cow milk has around 100 units of vitamin d per 8 oz so to get your recommended daily allowance (anywhere from 400-1000 depending on who you ask) requires you to consume a copious amount of milk per day ! that's part of the reason why vitamin d deficiency is so prevalent nowadays as its mostly derived from regular and direct sun exposure.
