SIP is the protocol Lync uses:

In that context 'SIP Traffic' is all signaling traffic between client/server and server-to-server.  E Very Lync client and server component uses SIP for core communications; it synonymous to mail clients using SMTP.

For internal clients and servers this traffic is all over TCP 5061, and external connections over TCP 443.

I can't add more to Jeff's comments as it sums it up all. but I think it would be much better if you actually deployed a demo Load balancer and configure it your self as it would be easier for you to understad when you work practically on it.

To start with it, download and configure the Virtual version of Kemp load balancer as it's compatible with Lync 2013. and they have a documentation on how to deploy it.
