HD/SD question

Bear with me for a moment here...

I currently have D* SD service with HD locals OTA (no LOS to 119 for SD locals).

I am having an HD upgrade on Friday where I will get my locals in HD from 99.

What will I need to watch my locals when they are not broadcast in HD? Will the 99 sat still broadcast the stream as my OTA would pick up or will I need to switch back and forth? Will my 99 HD locals be dark when my local stations are not broadcasting HD?

Does this question make sense?

but will it come from the 99 sat? will there be anything broadcast from the 99 when my local isn't showing HD?
Thank you. I just don't want dark channels since we cannot get 119. Hard enough to get my wife on board, dark HD channels would be very bad. :D
