Apache Tomcat - Load Balancer

Under this picture (link below) there is my imagination of how HTTP Server load-balancing would looks like.

This is what I understood reading Tomcat doc.

1. All clients (workstations) send requests to one machine (Load Balancer - which is Apache Tomcat).
2. In next step Load Balancer "forward" this request to one of HTTP srvers (nodes?). Those HTTP Serverr should be set up under Apache Tomcat (this same software as Load Balancer?).

This is, I believe, a very basic configuration.
However can anyone please confirm to me that it works this way ?
Im asking because I couldnt find any picture that describes that solution.
