Would machine with database (datasource) require .NET framework?

I understand that if an application is created using the .NET 3.5 framework, any machine running that application would require the .NET 3.5 framework in order to run it.  However, what if that application makes a database call (query) to a different machine (a "datasource" machine where the SQL Server 2005 database is).  Does the "datasource" machine need the .NET 3.5 framework as well?  Thanks!

No, it would not need to have it.  

The code will compile on your end, all you are doing is making a connection to it for data, not .Net manipulation.
