In a 2-site Replication Group with a dedicated master and dedicated priority-0 client, when the master goes down or is taken offline, the priority-0 client, which is non-electable as per its priority, is promoted to master. Replication Manager honors a priority 0 client proclaiming it master even if only one client remains in the group; of course this is a bug, and in a 2-site group the remaining surviving client will be promoted to master although it’s priority is 0.
