F5 Failover end-state

I have 2 F5 in HA (Active-standby configuration) with a gateway-failsafe enabled.
What would be my ending HA status if the following happens in order:

1. Primary (Active) lost connection to gateway 
2. Secondary (Standby) lost connection to gateway

My initial understading here is that: Secondary will become active, then stay active if both of the gateways for each F5 device is unreachable. Considering no Auto-fail back configured.

So Endstate would be 
Primary (Standby)

Or am I wrong on this one?
