I assume you're talking about a box such as a cisco local director. These
boxes basically act as a transparent bridge between two networks. generally
they are set up on an interal network and NATed to an external address. The
actual site being hit from outside points to the external ip of the local
director. the local director then hits the internal servers, on their
internal addresses. So, if this is correct, you should not be able to hit
the internal servers directly from outside. Hope that helps.

I have started to come across Load Balancing Servers lately, and am
wondering if anyone has any advise/tools when doing Penetration Tests
through these servers.

Thanks
