From my little understanding, it should not fail.
The (forwarded) request will arrive at the TCP end and if the number of execute threads (in v6; the default is 15 threads) are all busy, the request will be queued. When one of the the execute threads becomes free, then it will service that request.
There is a definite limit on the number of requests that could be queued (it seemed to be dependent on the available memory of the system and/or system limit on opened files).
