Answer

No.
When configured to take secondary backup, primary backup is not available for restore until the backup job ends with SnapMirror/SnapVault completion or failure.

Additional Information

If secondary backup fails due to timeout, only primary backup is available for restore, even if SnapMirror/SnapVault is successful on ONTAP side.
