It won't synch to it, but neither will it diverge rapidly from it.

In this case you would probably  be better off configuring the two 
internal servers in orphan mode, at the same stratum.  I'm not sure 
whether that changes the position about the GPS source becoming a 
falseticker due to lack of supporting votes.
