the dns is omportant to find the domain controller for this user and/or workstation.
It can cache credentials for some time and allow for "offline logon" but needs to connect to the DC after some time.

DNS comes into play because of the SRV records and how they are used to located a domain controller    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/247811

DNS is also necessary for replication but for logon the SRV records are key

Thanks
