Hi Emily.
Historically there used to be problems as you may recall Frank Lloyd Wright's famous quote telling his client to move his chair... It really comes down to the correct detailing and proper construction and leaks can be prevented 100%. One of my almost all glass homes erected in 2005 has survived many storms and is located in a coastal town where they get sideways as well as upward rains with no leaking. So don't ever be afraid of the pitch of the roof. As Baldridge mentioned the roofs actually do have valleys and ridges and there is always some logic to getting rain off each unique roof design and special ways to hide gutters and give an overall attractive look on any project.
