Oracle and Pro*C

I maintain an application using Pro*C programs to access to an Oracle database.
For the moment, programs and datas are together located on the same server... but, in the case of an architecture "clientserver"  (application located on a server, database located on another one), is it necessary to install an Oracle client (librairies...) on the application server to communicate with the database server ?

In others words : Are executables generated from Pro*C API need to work with Oracle librairies in local ? Or, these executables are selfworking,  not needing to access to Oracle functions locally based ?

Thanks a lot in advance for your answers.
