[Twisted-Python] Problems with long term connections?

I am putting together a number of servers that will all communicate with
each other every 5 or 10 minutes via TCP/IP connections. It occured to
me that once a connection has been established I might as well leave it
open permanently. Are there any problems/side effects of doing this? Is
it better policy to close and re-open the connection every now and then?
Also am I correct in assuming that if a computer at one end of a
TCP/IPconnection crashes or otherwise becomes unavailable the twisted
program at the other end will only know this when it attempts to send a
packet to the now crashed computer and, having no reply, gets a timeout.
Thanks for your help,
