You mean when you use a calendar? man calendar_conf

off=like disabled in qmod, the jobs will run until their end
suspended=suspended and still blocking resources

Nothing will be migrated/removed, unless you defined a checkpointing  
environment to migrate the jobs when the job/queue gets suspended.  
When you submit jobs with h_rt and SGE discovers that they can't  
finish before the queue is getting off/suspended, the job won't be  
scheduled to this queue at all.

There are some links on the "Howto" page.

Searching the mail archive will also reveal much information.
