Are Mailbox Databases Required or Advised on Exchange 2010 Public Folder Servers?

I seem to recall in Exchange 2007 if you had a mailbox server that was only used to host a Public Folder database, we'd add a Mailbox database to resolve a specific error.  I may be mistaken but I thought it had something to do with Schedule Free Busy information.  I'm not sure if this is still the case for 2010.  If anyone recalls please let me know, if you have the KB or technet article that would also be very helpful.  Of course any enlightenment would be helpful.

Thanks.

There is no issue keeping Mailbox and PF db on same server in Exchange 2010. Make sure to install Mailbox role.

Thanks for your reply.  I do understand MB and PF databases can be hosted on the same server, what I'm asking is if the mailbox database is required?  Or if there is some other reason that would compel one to have a mailbox database on the server.

Not mandatory, you can also host pf db alone.
