Yes. Pretty much. Keep in mind the server has no idea which will works so you are going to need to try the transports to see what works. 

A TURN client could lookup the UDP, start trying that  and in parallel go get DNS for tcp and test the TCP. If UPD (or TCP) does not work, it takes awhile to detect so parallel works out better. 

Related to this - for a web scale deployment, I'd do it much like google does DNS and have all the TURN servers have the same IP address so it can be cached for a long time then use any cast to get to the geographically close TURN server.
