Yes that's right. Which network issues can cause the socket to close without 
the initiating process closing the socket? In my limited experience in this 
area network issues were more prone to leave dead sockets open rather than vice 
versa so I don't know what to look out for.

I think he's saying that if the socket closes because of a crash (i.e. not a
normal zookeeper close request) then the session stays alive until the
session timeout, which is of course true since ZK allows reconnection and
resumption of the session in case of disconnect due to network issues.
