You just need to remove the CAS server from your NLB cluster.  I'm assuming you are using NLB.  If you are using some other sort of load balancer, then use it and remove the server from the array.  Here is a link and a blurb to help you:

To remove a host or all hosts from a Network Load Balancing cluster

To open NLB Manager, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Network Load Balancing Manager. You can also open NLB Manager by typing Nlbmgr at a command prompt.

If Network Load Balancing Manager does not list the cluster, connect to the cluster.

To remove a single host, right-click the host on which you want to disable Network Load Balancing, and click Delete Host.
