    This isn't technet bro

    But tbh, if you've got your load balancers clustered, one at a time, the sessions will hop over. If you haven't, oh well it's only a reboot

    You mean the load balancer or a server in rotation attached to the load balancer? Take the server out of rotation and reboot it. Look up "sticky sessions" which should be configured. If not, well, the only thing to do then is to reboot during slow times.

    The whole point of a load balancer is to move traffic to an available server in case one is overloaded or crashed. You should be able to reboot with no problems.
