No. In Windows DFS works great with just one single DFS server running
on a pure file server, in a domain with four DCs. Running more DFS
servers just increases the reliability and spreads the load.
"The namespace server can be a member server or a domain controller."
"You can increase the availability of a domain-based namespace by
specifying additional namespace servers to host the namespace."
"When a DFS client first attempts to access a domain-based namespace, a
domain controller provides a list of root servers to the client. This
list of root servers is known as a root referral."
