No. It's not like a timing belt. If the serp belt breaks, you will probably hear some noises and loose your power steering, alternator charge, water pump, etc. But that's it's In most cases you just put a new belt on and you're good to go. Mind you check your pullies and tensioner for possible damage or being the cause of the belt breaking.
EDIT: Agreed with above post. I never thought of the possibility of it being driving long after breaking. If it broke and you stopped right away, then you'd be fine. If driving till overheated, then you could be looking at some repairs.
