headings for links list

Today I realized how hard it is to find something specific within the WCAG 2.0!

Can anyone tell me if there is anything that indicates that a heading should be used to introduce a list of links that would reside in the content of a page (as opposed to providing a heading on a navigation menu)? I thought there was, but now that I am looking for it specifically, it eludes me.

To those of you who are screen readers, how important is it to you that a list of links have some sort of introductory heading, as opposed to discovering the nature of the links list by its context in the page content?

Thank you.
