Dear Thomas,
P.Howard proved the following, in a paper on JSL 1985:
(i) NS implies ACfin
(ii)NSN implies AC

[NSN states that there exists a set of free generators with a property
 obtained in the known algebraic proofs of NS, so AC implies NSN]
The equivalence of NSN and NS is listed as unknown in the book
of Howard and Rubin of 1991.

Best wishes, Marco
