Will a cracked oil pipe damage the gearbox?

My Mercedes-Benz C-Class has cracked the oil pipes on the gearbox. I ran out of oil and broke down. Will this have coursed damage to the gearbox?
Presumably automatic and presumably the pipes to and from the heat exchanger. Lack of fluid could have damaged the transmission, but if it didn't actually fail then there's a good chance it's okay.
