in Exchange 2010 you can load balance CAS servers, without resorting to 3rd Pary hardware Load Balancing, as described on this Link below:

 I wonder if the same thing can apply to Exchange 2013, or you you will have to resort to  Load Balancer ?

Thanks

Exchange 2013 does not require a hardware load balancer although it is part of the preferred architecture:

In fact, due to the new stateless functionality of the 2013 CAS role, you can even get away with public DNS round robin for quasi-load balancing.  This method obviously won't help if there is an issue with a specific vDir, but it will direct traffic in the instance the WAN IP is unreachable.

Performance, granular control, and it's Microsoft's recommendation.
