Server responses to overwhelming amounts of network traffic are often unpredictable. That's why DDOS attacks are a favorite cyber-terror tool (like the "hacking" that Anonymous does, which is mainly just script-kiddie style use of LOIC for DDOS).
Do a bit of research on DDOS. There are ways to mitigate the effects. If you're worried about the network going crazy again, you can implement safeguards against it.
