Does VXLAN must have multicast connectivity between nodes?

Hello, This's the first time I'm implementing VXLAN in my network. Basically, we're talking about pair of witches, pointing each to the other. I'll have 2 such pairs. From what I've saw from documentation of VXLAN, setting multicast connectivity between VTEPs is a REQUIREMENT. The question is – is with my simple scenario, switches pointing to each other, am I still must setup multicast between VTEPs in order VXLAN to work? Any answer will be appreciated. Thank you.
