VNC argument/port question

I have the VNC working with args: -vnc added to the config file.

What happens if the VM is migrated to another node with another VM using the same port ?

Is there a wider range of ports that can be used instead of 59xx or perhaps extend that range so I can add it to more VMs from different nodes so they do not overlap.

Thank you
I'm not sure exactly how it'd be handled but you could use the vmid as the xx number since vmids are forced to be unique across nodes within a cluster anyways. That's what I'm trying out.
