The OWL language has been carefully crafted so that inference is  
decidable.  Pellet is one of the reasoners that implements decision  
procedures for OWL  but there are others (Hermit, FaCT, ...).  You are  
more likely to be able to access these reasoners in Protege 4 than in  
Protege 3 though.  Conceivably you could access many reasoners in  
Protege 3 through DIG but DIG is not recommended at this point and  
will cause you many problems.
