If there is a temporary loss of connectivity to the branch routes, it is best practice to send the traffic that is destined for those networks into a black hole until connectivity is restored.

To configure a black hole route for branch networks:
config router static
    edit 6
        set dst 10.0.0.0/14
        set distance 254
        set blackhole enable
    next
end
