Answer

Azure Load Balancer is used to evenly distribute load (incoming network traffic) across a group of backend resources or servers.

It's the single point of contact for clients. Load Balancer distributes inbound flows that arrive at the load balancer's front end to backend pool instances. These flows are according to configured load balancing rules and health probes. The backend pool instances can be Azure Virtual Machines or instances in a virtual machine scale set.
