Are non frost-free freezers really better for meat storage?

I've been told that the now-common frost-free freezers can promote freezer burn in meats (and seafood) because the air circulates throughout the freezer, which can remove moisture from the meat.

By contrast, non frost-free freezer don't create such a problem because, well, there is no air circulation because they are not self-defrosting ...

Is this true? Any experiences?
