Yes.

It is declared in the standard include file <iostream> or in an include file that that includes.

For example, in the <iostream> that comes with VC 6, it is declared like

extern _CRTIMP ostream cout;

This declares it as an ostream object that has been externally defined.  That is, this says that the program being compiled has not and will not define cout, but cout is defined in some library that will be linked into it.
