Do I need to use an xsc file to restart a simulation in NVT?

Dear NAMD users,
I am restarting a simulation that was performed in the NVT ensemble. Do I need to use the xsc file in my restart simulation?
I have thought about this and my guess is "no", because the simulation cell does not change its shape in an NVT simulation. However, I'd like to confirm this before I continue. I have read the manual and searched the archives in the NAMD list but I could not find any information about this.
Thank you in advance for everyone's time and attention. Best regards,
