However, since tranny fluid is heavier than brake fluid (at least that's my intuitive guess), it may have settled. If you can suck all that fluid from the reservoir, then replace it, it's probably OK...but I'd have the system flushed completely. A good shop will have a power system whereby they open the bleeders, put the power system on the master, and push the fluid out, refilling as they go. I'd want a good flushing done. Brake fluid contamination is not a good thing.
