If all that you do is to replace the broken spoke and retrue the wheel you will have returned the wheel to what it was prior to breaking the spoke. Unfortunately, what it was before was a wheel that's about to break a spoke.

Whenever I replace a broken spoke I take the time to check the tension of every other spoke with my tensiometer. Then I equalize them before retrueing the wheel.
