I recently worked on a project that used a custom 3rd party adapter to retrieve messages from a B2B partner. The connection between both systems was very sensitive. The connection was lost every week during the weekend due the reboot of the server of the external party. After a while we saw that BizTalk was not able to reconnect and reestablish a connection. A monitoring system like SCOM could help us to alert and notify us of these problems. Although, this more or less means a human action was still required to fix the problem.
