NX, along with compression and caching technologies, provides session
persistence, desktop sharing and session shadowing. Do you mean that or
anything else?

Section 4.4 from

4.4 Session persistence

NX allows you to disconnect a session, either a desktop or a
floating-window session, from the remote display, i.e the proxy agent
will no longer be connected to any X client. But this doesn't have any
implication on your remote applications, which will continue to be
running. You will be able to reconnect the session later, even from a
different machine. More information about the NX session reconnection
policies are available here(link).
