It depends on what component is requiring it and what it does with it.
I also faced this issue with a software I use at work, where it did not 
start correctly if that file was missing, and I only understood the 
issue by looking at strace output...

Not really, you should generate it once (if missing) and keep it there.
It's part of the systemd "bandwagon":


If you run dbus on your system, you should already have a machine-id in 
/var/lib/dbus/machine-id. As these two files should have the same 
content, one usually symlinks one to the other (see the History section).
