A SAN certificate is like a wildcard certificate except you specify the domain/host names being protected.  Whether or not you need one depends on how you advertise autodiscover, etc, but the answer is almost certainly: "Yes, if you have multiple host names under one domain name, a SAN certificate is probably the right choice for you."
