No, it will not affect solution accuracy as long as your solution converges (with certain mointor indications: residuals, force, surface...).

usually we use to set the URF at a low value that what generally it is suggested everytime , but it does effect the solution more over whenever your solution conveges it dosen't mean that the analysis u run is correct always cross verify ur results with contours , graphs and compare the theorotical value and and the values which were calculated from fluent.

only then you can say that ur proposed analysis is correct.
