View 5 connection server replica

Quick question for a sanity check. I'm adding a secondary connection broker to our View environment and the documents I'm reading seem to indicate the replication server doesn't require its own SSL cert, but this seems contrary to the purpose of having SSL certs. Does the replication server need its own cert? Here is the doc I'm following.

The replica connection broker will need a SSL certficiate.   In our environment we use SAN certs with the loadbalanced name as well as the local host name.

We are using a self signed cert for the original connection broker, but I'd like to move to a wildcard cert from an intermediate authority for the environment. Will this cause any issues?

No, A wildcard certificate will work just fine.
