While PDFs usually embed the fonts needed to display them properly, that is not guaranteed to be the case. PDFs can rely on system fonts as well [insert discussion of font licensing here]. If you try to view such a PDF on a device without that font, font substitution will occur.

But certainly any PDF created for general distribution should have the fonts embedded.
