Its totally not necessary - cacti are one of the most eagerly rooting plants I've come across...never had a cutting not root. I've used rooting hormone a couple of times and it didn't seem to make any difference so now I don't use it simply since its strong plant hormones which I prefer to avoid when its not necessary. What I do do though is when I take the cutting I cut it flat across the bottom and then I make an angled cut near the bottom of each rib, chopping off a couple of areole sets, the ones that are going to be underground. I've found that when you do this the cactus throws out extra roots from the old areole sights.
