If your feeling uncertain of the diagnosis, don't hesitate to take it somewhere else to get a second opinion. An a/c compresser can be pretty pricey.
Was your AC not working before the belt broke? If it was, definitely get another opinion.

It's very possible that the belt broke because there is a problem with
the a/c compressor. If the compressor seizes then the belt is forced to
slide on the pulley and will eventually break. You need to look and see
if the belt that broke actually runs the a/c compressor as well, then
you'll know if what they're telling you is true.
