Topic: Which font to embed?

Hi PDF GURUs,
I have a very quick question in regards to which font to embed and which font not to embed.
According to PDF reference 1.5, the following fonts are the base fonts and do NOT need to be embed:
But, when I tried to using Adobe Distiller to convert the text to PDF file with the font "Arial Baltic", the font is NOT being embedded. The FontDescriptor for "Arial Baltic" exists but does NOT contains "/FontFile2".
I am just wondering, is any font that contains the name of the base font (such as "Arial"), does not need to be embedded?
Thanks for any help in advance.
