Not mechanically, no. The sway bar just controls body roll, and if it breaks it just makes noise and the car might seem to lean more in turns. Other than that, no harm.
But a broken suspension arm/tie rod is much more serious because they directly affect the attitude and attachment of the wheel, and could cause a serious wreck.
