It is supposed to be used like you are saying.
As long as the alive controllers have all the data you need, it will work fine.
They should if they were up before failure.
The failed one will either be unable to rejoin the cluster or just
follow the others.
It depends on its local state.
It will not impose its state on others so it is safe to turn it on and
then fix it.

(All the above assumes standard configuration)
