Small Business Server is a complete solution.  You must use Active Directory with it and to do that, you need DNS working properly.  If all you want is a file server (no domain), then consider Windows Storage Server - sold only with NAS devices, it has no Client Access License requirements and adds a few features to the basic Windows server (it CANNOT be a domain controller).
