FMServer in an internet-unstable environment. Does OAuth gracefully fallback to local authentication

I've got a client in a rural location where satellite internet service is unreliable. For a number of pretty good reasons they want to explore using Azure OAuth as the authentication mechanism into their FM solution. But it's not clear to me if they get dead-ended when the satellite link goes down (for a minute, hour, day) or if FMP will allow them to revert to a local-account style login? In that latter scenario, do we have to have two accounts per user: one that authenticates via OAuth and the other which is purely local FMPS? Or does the Oauth account revert to a local login mechanism if internet is down?

Has anyone else had to deal with that kind of scenario?
