I am setting up a VDI server using hyper-v.
I will have 17 Win 7 virtual machine running on a single 2008 R2 SP1 server.
I have an original Win 2008 server already on my network that is doing file and print services for about 40 users.
I was wondering if I should install the connection broker on this file print server to save myself from having to setup another virtual server just for the connection broker.

What are the pros and cons?

That's a lot of eggs in one basket.  If that single server fails you are losing file, print, and your connection broker.  I don't have much familiarity with RDS Connection Broker, though playing traffic cop for 17 VMs shouldn't be much of a strain resource wise.  My largest concern would simply be the number of roles that single server is dealing with.
