If the ssh process isn't sending anything, and just waiting for read()s, and keepalives are turned off, the SSH session might never know the remote side is long gone. . .

If any data were transmitted, it would discover the remote side is turned off.

See man ssh_config and the option TCPKeepAlive.

BTW: Since it's not on the command line, it's likely in /etc/ssh_config or /etc/ssh/ssh_config.  Or ~/.ssh/config.
