In practice... not a lot of water gets into the steerer via the stem or stem bolt but the front wheel throws a lot of dirty water up the steerer which will find it's way into the bottom race and washout will occur.

The ideal is to run fenders on any bike that is going to see a good deal of wet weather riding.
