The fall-back mechanism you describe is not part of the Servlet specification. 

The specification makes clear that URL rewriting is only one possible solution
for clients that do not support cookies. Containers are not required to support
URL rewriting; they are only required to provide a mechanism to provide session
tracking for clients that do not support cookies.

Further, the wording of SRV.7.1.1 indicates that a session ID from a cookie
takes priority over one from a url.
