Question Mount points -- deleting them deletes remote Windows share?

From my Ubuntu box I have mounted a Windows 7 Share Folder using a temporary directory (mount -t smbfs command). I'm trying to find out what would happen if I deleted this temporary directory (without unmounting 1st).

Yes, if you use rm -rf or something. The directory would not be deleted though as it has a filesystem mounted on it!
