It depends. With the command line above, the excess connection
will be accepted and then closed when pen figures out there is
no available server. If you however do this:

pen -r -x 2

then pen will never accept more than two connections at a time.
The rest will be queued. This behaviour isn't anywhere near as
annoying as accepting and immediately closing the connection.
