It should, yes.

Yes. Even if there is a Stratum 0 refclock attached, if it's far
enough off from the rest of the servers, then it should get voted off
the island and the system should instead select one of the servers as
its SYSPEER. It would go from being a Stratum 1 server directly
connected to a refclock to a Stratum 2 server that is directly
connected to a broken refclock (which is being currently ignored).
