Why? "never" seems a little strong. Mine does; what's the problem?
Given the fact that the OP want's to use fail2ban and has at least two
services running on his public host (apache, ssh) it was a reasonable
guess to stress out that a firewall is a must in his situation.
I can not talk about your server configuration because I don't know
anything about it! :)
In general, the requirements for firewalling a public host depends on
the environment and other factors.
Googling this topick will show that there is no formal answer.
