The device selected as the Master Device is used to gather user information.  The gathered user and group mapping information is used for shared policy configiration.

Selecting a Master Device is not mandatory for Panorama operation.  Again, if you would like to get the user information available on a PAN device on to Panorama for policy creation, then this option needs to be selected.   This has nothing to do with HA.
