by “HA configured” I expect you’re referring to the “Highly Available” checkbox 
in Edit VM dialog.

expectation is that you won’t do that. That’s why there is the Maintenance host 
But if you do that regardless, with VMs running, all the processes will be 
terminated in a regular system way, i.e. all QEMU processes get SIGTERM. From 
the perspective of each guest this is not a clean shutdown and it would just 
get killed
