Yes, you got it right. And, link.exe needs it when you add '/debug' to your option list. Actually, link.exe requires it for proper functioning.

If you use a different linker, you don't need the dll. But, if you use the one provided by masm32, you need it.

Some debuggers, such as WINDBG, also use MSPDBxx.DLL to provide source level debug info. However you do need to make sure that the linker and debugger both use the save version of MSPDB for it all to work.
