    2) Whether DNS is required for Intranet/LAN?

    What kind of DNS server? See http://homepages.tesco.net/~J.deBoyn...ver-roles.html if you don't know
    2) Whether DNS is required for Intranet/LAN?
    No, but it can be useful, depending upon what role you want your DNS server to play - see above.
    3) For whish situations DNS server should be installed?
    See my first point.
