I recently setup a small RDS farm with connection broker and NLB. I have the option in the connection broker to allow reconnections but prevent new logons. According to the write-ups this is the proper setting and it seems it would be so that users aren't logging into more than one server at a time. My question is: how would a user log in for the first time if new logins are prevented?

You can configure the user logon mode on the RD Session Host server to prevent new user sessions from being created on the RD Session Host server. This capability was released with Windows Server 2008.
You might want to prevent new user sessions from being created on the RD Session Host server when you are planning to take the RD Session Host server offline for maintenance or to install new applications.
Otherwise above setting is not required during regular course
In normal case "Allow all connections" is by default selected and is the recommended setting. This allows users to connect remotely to the RD Session Host server to establish a remote session.

Allow reconnections, but prevent new logons -  
If you select this setting, a user who already has a remote session running on the RD Session Host server can reconnect to that session. However, a new user—that is, a user that does not currently have a remote session running on the RD Session Host server—will not be able to connect to the RD Session Host server. If the RD Session Host server is restarted, no users will be able to connect to the RD Session Host server.
