some sites say it does, other that it's not recommended.

Never has been. I've set up about 40 2008 WSUS Servers in the last year and none have been anything but Member servers.

No, It does not need to be on a domain controller.  If you only have one server and it's a DC, then that's fine, otherwise I find it generally a better idea put WSUS on a non DC server.
