Archived Datasets That Are Replicated

A simple question for the knowledgeable.  We have a department that edits a feature class stored in our enterprise SDE geodatabase using the Collector App.  We replicate our standard datasets to a file geodatabase on their server (parent to child 1-way).  I recently enabled archiving on the dataset they edit in the field.  This is a dataset that is changing throughout the week, with features being added and then deleted (currently placed mosquito traps for west nile virus testing program).  


Here is my question:  For them to be able to see historical views of the dataset, do they need a connect to our SDE database? Or can we replicate this dataset to the file geodatabase and they will be able to view historical versions of it? I am presuming they need the SDE connection, but wanted to ask the experience.
