No, it doesn't.  It would, if $scanner sends one SYN and wait for the
answer to it.  In fact it sends you SYNs to all your ports at once and
collects answers (or not) in parallel.  You extend the scan time for one
timeout (which is nothing (~3min?) against the time to send all
requests).

Don't do that,
 regards, Frank.
