No, domain account for ms cluster service is prerequisite. You can use Active directory domain, or nt4.0 domain if you did not upgrade your domain controllers.
Once I tried to "emulate" this using same accounts on both nodes with the same password (for nt 4.0 cluster). At first it seemed to work but later led to problems.

Why not make one of the servers in the cluster the PDC?
No matter where you go, there you are.

I do not understand which documentation you mean. If it is Microsoft support documentation for MSCS you can go to: support.microsoft.com, select Windows2000 and search for "cluster".
