Can someone justify the benefits of adding more web servers to existing list?

Will it decrease latency for I/O requests.

Existing list of what?

Adding web servers helps with scalability because you can respond to more requests.

I meant existing list of web servers.

Yes true it will help with scalability.

1) Don't you think it will help indirectly decrease latency for I/O bound requests since now load would be less on server.
2) Also it will increase the number of user accounts that can be supported.

No. Latency is not dependent on the number of requests being made.

Also it will increase the number of user accounts that can be supported.

Why?

What does user account has to do with number of web servers? Please explain it in more detail.
