Try it and see.

Generally you should get an error callback for write if the connection
has closed. You may or may not get one for read, depending on how the
connection was closed. (Graceful shutdown or local connections
typically will, unexpected remote disconnection typically won't.)

This is not unique to ASIO; it's how pretty much all TCP sockets work.
