I just set up an svnsync system a few weeks back and my read is that
the two repositories are basically mirror images of each other, but
that the mirror should never be committed to.
(Except for svnsync of course, it will shoot the commits performed on
the master to the mirror thus replicating the state)

But if you decide to take the master off-line at a later time and run
with the mirror instead, then what you need to do is modify the hooks
that are present on the mirror to disallow commits except from svnsync
and whatever sync related hooks you have in place.
After that the mirror should act as a regular repository, but you can
no longer sync with the original because of colliding revision
