Service Broker downside

5 pts.
Tags:
SQL Server 2008
I have service broker up and running accross 2 instances. If data is entered/updated on table A in instance A, it will send a message to the target queue and a stored procedure is used to read in the message and perform the update to table B on instance B. Once service broker is up and running, does anyone know if there would be scenario where a message would be lost or unprocessed? I'm trying to determine if there is a downside to using service broker as a data replication method. Any insight would be appreciated.

No there is no way for a message to be lost or left in the queue. If there is a problem sending the messages between the instances then the messages will back log on the source instance until the problem is resolved.
