No, this is not required. Look at "com." for an example. All that is
required is the NS and SOA. Most people need an MX, and with the rise
of SPF (spf.pobox.com) a TXT record is a good idea. (I do not advocate
use of SPF in mail processing, but I do publish SPF for my own zones.)

That's often a convenient way to set it up, but again, not required.
For that matter a "www" record is not required. The Internet does not
revolve around the use of HTTP.
