How does BE 20 deal with failed incrementals

So we had a failed Differential to our OST device today. This was due to the S2S link to DR going down briefly.

How does BE deal with differentials? Should I assume every subsequent dif is corrupt until a new full is taken, or will the failed diff not be included in the chain?

Taking a new full backup is not an option as it takes a couple of days to complete which can only be done over the weekend. This means we have to wait another week before starting a new chain.

The failed diff will not be included in the chain, but the subsequent diff would be included if it is successful. This will not be the case of you are doing incr.
