I am setting up a Windows 2012 RDS farm (1 RD Connection Broker, 4 RDS hosts).  

I am setting up the connection broker server first.  Since we just want to published app only and not doing VDI, I am picking “Session-based desktop deployment”.  When it comes to RD Session Host, how do I specify the other 4 Windows 2012 servers I have setup for the purpose of Session Host?

Run the Session-based Desktop Deployment wizard on those servers as well, then push a Group Policy to them that defines the Connection Broker. Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\RD Connection Broker is the setting you need.
