You can stop the TS/RDP services. That server should also be listed somewhere is the RDP manager along with the others. I'd remove it.

- Make sure you have removed that server from "Session Broker Computers" group. You will find this group on server where "Remote Desktop Connection Broker" role is installed.

- Change Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration setting and dis-join server from farm.

- Remove round robin entry from DNS for that server (FarmName x.x.x.x)

- Users can still connect to that server if they specify hostname or IP address of that server. To prevent users from connecting to that server remove users/group from "Remote Desktop Users" group of that server.
