How does hostapd interact with an external RADIUS server?

I am using freeRADIUS as an external authenticator with hostapd (not
by choice but due to some compatibility issues with the client) in a
My understanding is that the RADIUS server is used only during
authentication and then for re-keying but is out of the picture during
normal data transfer.
I am curious what happens if the freeRADIUS server dies. Does hostapd
(somehow) disassociate all clients who then have to re-connect and
I am seeing clients dropping off the network around the same time the
freeRADIUS server is dying (still investigating that problem) and I am
curious about the connection between the two events.
