Host-Host Dependency with Downtime


I have a Host-Host dependency config:

apply Dependency for (parent in host.vars.parents) to Host {
parent_host_name = parent
states = [ Up ]
disable_checks = true
disable_notifications = true
ignore_soft_states = false

Is it possible to apply a dependency when the parent host is in a downtime?
Or does the dependency take effect automatically when downtime is set for the host?
