Is a domain controller still needed with only thinclients

Hi Professionals,

maybe a stupid question but i want to know the answer. In this example we have a main location with 2 dcs running 2003 r2. There are only thinclients running and loadbalanced citrix servers. In the outbounded offices are only thinclients no laptops or pc. Shure there is the need for dhcp and routing but no dc???
The  thinclient log in by ica protocoll so the auth is anyway at the main location?

Am i wrong or right?

Correct, you shouldn't need a dc at the other site.

If all clients go to citrix its not needed.  But if you have a dns/dhcp server there then there is no harm in making it a dc also

Is this a single site domain, or?
