Should DNS be on same server as webserver?

The other day, a FreeBSD 'expert' told me that it is important to
have the DNS server for a domain on the same server as the domain's
web server. Supposedly, this saves doing tons of DNS look ups over
the network. Instead, they are done locally.
This makes sense to me, but I wonder if the performance difference is
really that significant?
