Your question is sufficiently light on detail that it cannot be
realistically answered.

What sort of load balancing?
1: Traditional SLB - you hand out one IP address, and have a load balancer
widget which shares this to multiple backends?
2: Global SLB - you hand out different IP addresses to different clients?
3: Round Robin - you hand out different IP addresses, but randomly / in a
order, not tied to specific clients?
4: Anycast - you hand out the same IP address, but this lives on multiple
sites, and routing takes care of getting people to the closest site?
5: Multiple nameservers? Something else?

The term "load balance" is very vague / can be applied to multiple things -
for all of the above except  #2, this should just work without any changes.
GSLB *may* require more work, but may not. # 5 is sufficiently undefined
that it cannot really be answered :-)

What *exactly* is the question / scenario you are asking?
