Microsoft has not tested the functionality of authentication and other system components when the DNS client service is turned off. DNS is the primary name resolution method for any application, and the DNS Client service is responsible to maintain the client cache. If the service is turned off, it will no longer cache domain names. Even though this action might not break name resolution directly, other components that depend on the DNS Client service will fail.
