That depends on your needs, if you want every server accesible from the internet on the standard 3389 port, then yes.
It can be done another way around , just have 1 or a few ip addresses with nat/pat rules forwarding traffic to diferrent rdp servers behind same ip.
A client would connect to ip.ip.ip.ip:3331 to server A, ip.ip.ip.ip:3332 to server B and so on.

I gave the second terminal server the same public IP and it worked great. THANK YOU!
When it comes to the "weight" of the servers.  IF I have two of them and I want them to be equally balanced do I leave them at 100 or do I put them to 50 and 50?
