I have an old wheel with LX hubs and Sun Sub IV rims. One of the spokes broke. I'm wondering if the other spokes will break due to fatigue. This is my around town beater, but I occasionally take it to the trails.

Spokes break because of mechanical damage, low quality, and/or improper building techniques. If one breaks (assuming it wasn't due to a big stick or other damage), you can replace it, but you're likely to continue to have problems with that wheel.

Why not just try the cheap fix first? Spend a buck and replace the spoke. If it'll help you achieve peace of mind, I have replaced a broken spoke every so often on various wheels over the years and not had any noticeable domino effect.
