Cable Calibration

I own a 8753C Network analyzer. 

There are times when I use cables and I calibrate at the ends of my cable with a HP 3.5 mm cal kit (85033C).

I have read that one may receive incorrect s11 data when one tests a device at the end of the cable because cable losses are not included in the cal kit definition.   Is this statement correct or does my network analyzer utilize a self correcting algorithm when cables are utilized in measurement?
