Yes you do. It is my knowledge that a WINS server cannot service requests between domains. Plus having you own local WINS will be better performance wise.

It is my understanding that as long as you have a computer designated as the MasterBrowser you should be able to browse the domain over a period of time (and enable Netbios over TCP/IP) on all the machines.  However, WINS would be a much better choice anyway.
