Are Verified GMB Listing & Multiple Local Directory Listings Necessary To Rank Just In Local SERPs?

In episode 180 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts by Semantic Mastery (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xm259AszLMA), one viewer asked if it still important to have a claimed and verified GMB listing and multiple local directory listings if you just want to rank in local SERPs but not in the 3-Pack

The exact question was:

Hi Guys,

Thank you VERY much again for the help you provide, your generosity will be rewarded tenfold 🙂

Can you please help with the following 🙂

1) If you’re looking to just rank in the Local SERs, but not in the 3-Pack, is it still important to have a claimed and verified GMB listing as well as multiple Local Directory listings, and how many Local Directory listings would be ideal?
