A no-til drill has heavy a duty down pressure system or coulters to work the ground near the seed trench to allow the seed proper placement without working the field in the conventional way. Of course this is not makes no difference for grass seed, because without proper seed to soil contact it will not germinate and any competion will smother it out.

The No Till basically has a blade that cuts a trench which the seed drops in at a set depth and is covered all in one pass.
It would be your best route unless you have rocks or set to sow the seeds to deep and they smother.
Most of the fields around here are disced regardless. The reason i assume to allow air and moisture into the ground.
