When Does Windows 7 Computer Object Become Stale?

Here's the scenario - I have two Windows 7 Embedded systems joined to our domain (a 2008R2 Functional Level).  One will be online, the other powered down, staged as a backup to replace the first as a passive fail-over should the need arise.  They will have the same IP addresses, but not the same computer names.

My question - will the backup system remain joined to the domain when powered on after say 6 month?  Does the computer object become stale after a set amount of time, or should I plan on requiring the backup system to be re-joined to the domain upon bootup?  

Any practical advice would be appreciated.
