All the APs termintating on the local controller will keep working
The thing is that you wont be able to modify ap configurations or any configuration that the master syncronize with the local controller.

Something else to keep in mind, is that the local-user/ap databases are master only, so if you're making use of these, the local might run in a reduced service state during failover (i.e. certain configurations wouldn't work fully). Examples are...
1. If you're using machine-auth enforcement.
2. Using the local databases for guest or RAP authentication.
I did have it in my mind a new feature was mentioned regarding syncing local databases from masters to locals, but maybe I imagined/dreamt it?!?!

Masters are responsible for the following functions in the WLAN:
- Policy configuration
- AP white lists
- Wireless security coordination
- Valid AP list
- RF visualization
- Initial AP configuration
- Control plane security
- Authentication and roles
Locals are responsible for the following functions in the WLAN
- AP, AM, and SM configuration, management, and software updates
- Device session termination
- ARM assignments and load balancing
- RFProtect™ security enforcement and blacklisting:
- RFProtect spectrum analysis
- CPsec AP certification
- Quality of service (QoS)
