Load balancer is a service which distributes inbound flows that arrive at the load balancer's front end to backend pool instances (Azure Virtual Machines or instances in a virtual machine scale set), according to the configured load balancing rules. Backend pool defines the group of resources that will serve traffic routed from the load balancer. The backend pool - {AzureBackEndPool} which is attached to the load balancer {AzureBackEndPool.LoadBalancer.Name} do not have load balancing rules associated with it.
