Is VTP needed?

Our network topology has two distribution switches, each having uplinks (one odd, one even) to all the access layer switches.  The access switches are in "Transparent" mode.  My question is will having the distribtion switches in "VTP mode off" cause any adverse effect on the network?

  No it won't .  No reason to have it on if they are in transparent mode.

As a side note, you can only turn VTP "Off" on a CatOS switch. On an IOS switch transparent IS off. I normally have each switch be transparent and in its own domain.
