Does each TS server in my farm need to have a NAT rule to the outside world and it's own seperate outside IP?

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?
