Remote Desktop Services 2008 R2- connection broker offline, will session remain?

Good day,

I am looking to deploy a new Remote Desktop Services 2008 R2 Farm. If a connection was established from a client to a Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RDCB) server to a RD Session Host, and the RDCB went offline, would the load balanced session from the client to the Session Host disconnect? Or would it resume  and not be affected when the RDCB came back online?

I am trying to determine if there is a need to create a cluster with a second RDCB.

Thank you!

Session should remain unless you have set policy to log off disconnected sessions.
