st: Question about xtlogit and temporal dummy variables

I had a question about Beck, Katz and Tucker (1998)'s recommendation
for using temporal dummies to approximate a proportional hazard model.

I was trying to understand exactly if temporal dummies are necessary
(or desirable) when using xtlogit to estimate a discrete time event
history model.

I wasn't sure (and couldn't really tell in reading the documentation)
to what extent xtlogit already incorporates this in its estimates or
does the user have to specify them? Or if specifying them might
interact with any correction that xtlogit does already.

Thanks for your input!
