The Docker provider does not require a Vagrant box. The
config.vm.box setting is completely optional.
A box can still be used and specified, however, to provide defaults. Because the
Vagrantfile within a box is loaded as part of the configuration loading sequence, it can be used to configure the foundation of a development environment.
In general, however, you will not need a box with the Docker provider.
