I think I missed the origional post, I'm sure I pointed to which just does what is

Both ways are suposed to work. The default is to leave the session open for 
future use. Xvnc (the core binary) has many options to controll this. You can 
pass these options to the `vncserver` script too, or even update it. See `Xvnc 
--help` for a list of options.

Be warned, if Xvnc is closed by ending the session, all subprocesses are 
crashed!, no nice exit of those subprocesses. On the other hand, if you use the 
setup as on, you better 
close the windows session, that will close all processes (including Xvnc and 
hence your viewer) in a much nicer way.
