It's not especially well known on JTDs, but all modern cars are susceptible to cambelt or cambelt pulley failure. For goodness sake get it done.
When you are sat at the side of the Motorway in the middle of Winter, with a wrecked engine, you can't be saying "well, the handbook says 72,000 miles"....
The dealer also can't be held responsible if it does go now, as he has advised you about it. You could go somewhere else for a second opinion if you think they are trying to lift your leg.
