the first imp reason is : PERFORMANCE ISSUE
second is :
AD SERVICES take a long time to start up. but exchange services take comparitively less time
so if the echange services starts before it then it will not be able to detect the DS server and will give you DSACCESS errors etc.. it wouldnt find the configuration dc etc.. though its on the same server...

if for some reason there occurs an windows error or problem on the OS. this will create problem on the Exchange too...
if you dont have multiple DCS.. then this will be a big pain if.. your DC goes down....
