As a follow up on my own question. This is what the docs say:

At server startup time, this Connector will create a number of request
processing threads (based on the value configured for the
minSpareThreads attribute). Each incoming request requires a thread for
the duration of that request. If more simultaneous requests are received
than can be handled by the currently available request processing
threads, additional threads will be created up to the configured maximum
(the value of the maxThreads attribute). If still more simultaneous
requests are received, they are stacked up inside the server socket
created by the Connector, up to the configured maximum (the value of the
acceptCount attribute. Any further simultaneous requests will receive
"connection refused" errors, until resources are available to process
