The passive PA will still become active, and will still pass traffic, it simply will not be utilizing the same configuration file. This can cause issues for example if you've since added/removed additional security policies that are not present on the peer HA unit; a function that is expected to be working could possibly stop functioning simply because the configuration was not in sync with your peer unit.
