Question about tunneling, authentication, and connection persistence

If a CONNECT request is sent to a tunnel, and tunnel responds with a
407 (Proxy Authentication Required), is it usually true that the HTTP
connection stays persistent?

In theory, the tunnel could indicate that the current HTTP connection
is closed, therefore, a new connection must be established to the
tunnel for the new CONNECT request with authentication information.
However, in practice, how likely does that happen? Thanks,

Zhong Yu
