No you don't need a separate line for fax machine,you can use a multi jack and use both telephone and fax on the same jack and programme the line in such a way that if you are not picking the phone in 4 or 5 rings it goes to the fax machine.

however if you want a separate number for the fax machine on the same telephone line you have a feature called I dent a call (distinctive ring)where in its a virtual number and you can select different rings for the phone and fax and the fax machine would identify if its a phone call or incoming fax.
