Video and audio data have different needs, so two connections
would allow one transfering real-time data (maybe without error
correction) for audio, the other can transfer VNC video data
(no need for high priority real-time, but for error free transmission).

Of course, sometimes a single connection makes things much easier
(for example behind a firewall)...
