One other scenario. If a mom goes down and you restart the mom with -p, then offline the node the MOM will track the job until it finishes. 

You could also restart the mom with -q and the job will be requeued. But because the mom has lost control of the job it will still continue to run. TORQUE will just stop tracking it.
