No, not necessarily.  I have entries like this:

%%(diary-anniversary 1981 03 17) Somebody's birthday (%d years)

and the agenda view shows "Somebody's birthday (19 years)"; the actual
heading for this entry is ignored.  In fact, I have a large number of
such entries all in the same headline.

However, I don't know if other diary- functions work the same way.

I use the org-recur [1] package for this.  Very nice for repeating
