Several options are available.

If your application servers can share session information between them, 
make sure to let session cookies through to the backend where required.

If sessions are not used often, you could dedicate one application 
server to handle sessions.

Finally, you could use the client director and (somehow) add the session 
cookie to the client identity.

There might be other options as well, these are from the top of my head.

Hope this helps,
