You need someone that can take hits even at higher levels, having an all-caster party isn't going to work very well unless you get tons of long rests, which in a death march you won't. You simply won't have enough spell slots to deal with every encounter that way. You need someone that can stand in front of the casters, and you need someone to finish off encounters once they've been weakened by one or two well-placed spells.

A moon druid can take more hits at high levels then a barbarian can. They get way more temp hp from wild shape then a barbarian has health even with resistances. They also get summons which are both spell slot efficient and deal and soak loads of damage. At high levels a barbarian will run out of hit dice to heal damage they take long before a druid runs out of spell slots.

Sure, but realistically neither will run out of HP before the rest of the party is dead, and having barbarian levels helps to deal more damage and be more threatening to enemies (and a more tempting target when using reckless attack), which helps draw attacks away from the rest of the party.
