Not always. It depends on what kind of stanza it was!

What I would expect to happem is either:
  * The TCP driver retransmits the packet a few times and then considers 
the client to be dead and closes the connection, or...
  * The dial-up user's IP address has now been assigned to a different 
customer, so it'll send a RST packet back to indicate that it doesn't 
know anything about this TCP stream.

 From what others have been saying, though, it seems that I'm wrong 
about the first point in practice.
