The "Is the PC Sync chord needed" question seems common amongst discussions about the SD-8A or other copies. For the Nikon version I found this:

"The second cable has a flash PC connection, this should be connected to the Speedlights sync terminal found under the rubber flap on the side of the flash. When the Speedlight is triggered a signal is sent to the SD-8A via this cable to instruct it to prepare and start recharging the Speedlight as soon as possible. This method allows the SD-8A to recharge a Speedlight faster than other external power supplies, which are dumb and must wait until the Speedlight begins to the draw power."
