Is there an official paper from Microsoft on how often to do defrag and SFC on SBS 2003?

Having loads of problems with LaCerte on sbs 2003 R2 and lacerte is asking if we defragged or run sfc at all or regularly.  I said no to both.

Am I wrong?  I asked them for their best practices recommendation and they said it's a microsoft issue and MS says monthly?!  

We run shadow protect for backup so that will cause huge backups every month after a defrag.  I thought the need for defrag has gone away?  

And SFC?  I never heard to run that routinely.

as for checking the hard disks (it's a RAID array), I posted that question here:
