Hey, how are you, my friends!
I have got a question about the difference between "doesn't (don't) need to be " and "need not to be". I am clear that the first "need' here is helping verb whild the second action verb, right? But what is the difference. Following is an example:
"The composition ____________ corrected any more."
So which one can complete the sentence above? Give the explanation please!!!

Yours truly!!!

It needs to be corrected.

Does it need to be corrected?
Doesn't it need to be corrected?

It needs to be corrected.
It need not be corrected. ***
It needed to be corrected.
It needn't have been corrected. ***
Need it be corrected? ***
Needn't it be corrected? ***
Need it have been corrected? ***
Needn't it have been corrected? ***

The two series above are equal in meaning.
*** shows the alternate expression with modal "need"
Note that "modal 'need'" is only non-assertive, i.e., has no assertive forms, i.e., has to have a negative or interrogative context.

"doesn't need to be" is right.
"need not be" could be an alternative,
but I personally want to go with the first one.

The verb "need" has a double function, i.e. as a helping(auxiliary) verb and as one of the general verbs. When it is used in the negative sentences, it takes the form of either "doesn't(don't) need to V" when regarded as a general verb or "need not V" when regarded as an auxiliary verb. "neither not to be" doesn't satisfy either of the functions.

I hope my comments will be of help.
Let's wait for moderators to jump in and leave some words on this.
OOPS!
"neither" should be corrected to read "need."
