Server 2012 RDS Remote Desktop (RDP) Issue

I am currently looking to replace an old 2003 Terminal Server (single server) with Server 2012 RDS (Clustered). Setup as Session Host Deployment

Setup:
Connection Brokers = 2 Hosts (HA / Load Balanced / Also server as Web Access Host)
DNS Round Robbin = Configured a DNS A-Record that point to the 2 Connection Broker hosts
Session Hosts = 3 Hosts (Offers users Classic Desktop, similar to 2003 Terminal Server)
Remote App Session Host Collection = 1 - 2 (Will present remoteapp to Session Hosts listed above)

Issue I am having
I can access the Web Access Remote Apps without problem through the single DNS Round Robbin Name. This works without issue
But when I attempt to RDP (using the DNS Name) so I can access the Session Host as the "classic style" Desktop, I am getting a "User does not have access" error
The Domain Users group has access to the session collection, so I know it is not permissions at the session hosts
I believe what is happening is the DNS Round Robbin is pointing to the Brokers and the user does not have permission to log on the Brokers, not should. But the Brokers are not redirecting/load balancing the RDP Request (just the RemoteApp/Web requests)
I am not sure what is needed to resolve the issue so the brokers will direct the RDP request properly

I have found if I add the Session Host Role to the Connection Brokers, but then place each of those hosts in "Drain" Mode the redirection to the proper hosts happen as wanted.
