A separate pool is not required, there is no practical reasons why long term backup cannot be in the same pool as "ordinary" backups.
Consider the following points - input for consideration :)

There are a couple of reasons to split the pools
One reason to separate the pools is vaulting. If you vault everyday like I do, you do not generally want to send mostly empty tapes off site for long term.
I put my long term tapes in separate pools, so I can run a specific vault to just eject those tapes.
Another reason to split pools, you may want to set the max partially full tapes in that pool to only 1, so you do not waste more tapes.
