no, it won't always be true. Consider:
var functionName=null;
//
// ...
//
if (functionName) { 
    alert('true') 
} else { 
    alert('false') 
}

functionName = function() { 
 // Some useful stuff
}

if (functionName) { 
    alert('true') 
} else { 
    alert('false') 
}
There are plenty of use cases where testing a function for existence is perfectly valid. I guess not in that particular case though.
