multicast/unicast terminal server cluster NLB

We have a unicast terminal server cluster. what about changing the cluster properties to IGMP multicast as noted here:

right now all hosts in the cluster are configured with single NIC. if we switch to multicast IGMP will I need to enable and connect the secondary NIC?

all servers are windows server 2003

-Thanks
