I read it shortly after the bill was passed. The "not required" thing is the key to it. If I'm misinformed it is Graham and McCain misinforming me. " A man with one watch knows what time it is; a man with two watches is never quite sure" The Naval Observatory has banks of watches (atomic clocks) and they are the standard timekeeping facility for the United States.

Section 1021 lacks what are standard definitional aspects of similar legislation that define scope with specificity. It also lacks the critical component of requiring that one found to be in violation of its provisions must have acted with some amount of scienter — i.e., that an alleged violator’s conduct must have been, in some fashion, “knowing.” Section 1021 tries to do too much with too little — it lacks the minimal requirements of definition and scienter that could easily have been added, or could be added, to allow it to pass Constitutional muster.

And a federal judge from the US District court blocked the NDAA provision for just this reason:

Judge Forrest disagreed with the federal government’s argument that the relevant provisions of the NDAA merely restate existing law. She wrote: “Section 1021 is not merely an ‘affirmation’ of the AUMF [Authorization for the Use of Military Force].”
Pointing out that were Section 1021 and the AUMF identical then the former would be redundant, Judge Forrest held:

Senators McCain, Graham and Ayotte have wrapped up their meeting with UN Ambassador Susan Rice about her role in presenting false information about what happened to Benghazi to the American people. She said on five Sunday talk shows the attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi on 9/11 was the result of a spontaneous protest that got out of control. Today she admitted that wasn't true, opening a whole other door for questions about why false talking points were used in the first place.
