Certainly not. Read the help text and/or the man page. 
You need --jserv only if you have more than one Jack
server running on the same machine, or if the only one
doesn't have the default name.

P.S. Contrary to 'official wisdom', having more than one 
server (and hence having to select wich one to connect
to) is perfectly normal thing in some use cases.
