I don't think there's any seal in that joint, Ben.  Rather, I believe it's
a compression fitting with a flare on the metal tubing.

Unless the line is leaking enough to have a steady stream of fluid running
out of it, I doubt the leak would make the car fail the bomb test (which is
to turn off the engine and pump the brake pedal until it gets "hard".  A
good bomb will permit 20-30 + pumps).
