The PDF can contain embedded fonts. That is, if your system has Eurostile, and your document uses Eurostile, then when the PDF is created, the Eurostile information from your system can be embedded in the PDF so that your document can be displayed correctly on any system.
If you don't use embedded fonts, then if someone opens the document on a system without the Eurostile font, the PDF is displayed using a substitute font from the local system. Distiller looks after embedding the fonts. In Distiler, you can choose whether to embed specific fonts. I'm not sure what the "Rely on system fonts" setting in your printer driver does, unless it's a proxy for a Distiller instruction not to embed fonts. You can view the fonts used in a PDF by selecting File > Properties and then selecting the Fonts tab.
