Bing Map tiles urls

In the Bing Maps REST services documentation it is mentioned that the tile URLs

change regularly and as such directly accessing tiles from a hardcoded URL is not allowed

How can be determined if the URLs that were received from an Imagery Metadata request are still valid if one uses a "long running session".
Is a specific error returned regarding the Common Response Description, that can maybe be checked?

The note is telling you that by design, when tile data is updated, a new URL is employed. All you need to do is make a new call to the meta data API and get the latest URL or use one of the controls that handles the tiles for you. See Microsoft.com/maps.
