Default merging bam files with samtools

Hi,

I'm using merge option in samtools for merging bam files. Just one query, do I need to first sort each bam file before merging or I've to sort the merged bam file?

My understanding is that you should perform all upstream processing (e.g. merging, fixing headers, etc) and then sort. As the output from some functions are unsorted.
