What's guaranteed is the serif and sans-serif will be present in any browser/platform/OS environment.  The rest - as usual - depends on whether a particular font is installed on the user's computer.  Some O/S use the 'same' font but with a different name!!  I think some of those on your list do not exist by default on every platform.
