No, from bash(1):

 Exit  immediately  if a simple command (see SHELL GRAMMAR above) exits
 with a  non-zero status.   The  shell  does  not exit if the command that
 fails is part of an  until  or while  loop,  part of an if statement,
 part of a && or || list,  or  if  the  command's return value is being
 inverted via !.

This is equivalent.
