By logical implication, yes.  As were St. Robert Bellarmine, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Augustine, St. Pius V, Bl. Pius IX and St. Pius X.  If BoD is an error, the entire Church has been in abject heresy, forever.  It is ludicrous.

Also, when defining necessity of water baptism, is it meant to be a necessity of precept or a necessity of means? not all necessity is absolute, and this might help clear apparent contradiction between Trent and the doctors.
