Install, no, it is already installed by the very fact of being a DC. If 
you mean do I have to manually use winbind on a DC, only if you want 
your users to log into the DC directly and this is not recommended.

Have to, no, but it is recommended that you do, what happens if your 
other DC goes down ?

I normally install these:

samba samba-vfs-modules samba-common-bin samba-common samba-libs 
libwbclient0 samba-dsdb-modules libnss-winbind smbclient libpam-winbind 
libsmbclient winbind krb5-config libpam-krb5 krb5-user ssh-krb5 ntp 
ldb-tools zip arj mktemp acl attr quota
