Do Sandwich No Trump bids need to be alerted

After I opened one club and my partner responded 1 diamond, the next player bid 1NT.  His team eventually bid and made a partial contract in one of the majors.  After the hand, the NT bidder told his partner that he should have alerted the bid.  However his partner strongly disagreed.  I also chimed in about the need to alert.  Later, the non-alerter showed me an article on his smartphone that said the sandwich bid does not need to be alerted.  However, I found at least 2 sites that strongly implied that it does. 

Must sandwich bids be alerted?
