cloning a safety clone

I have my main drive partitioned into the principal partition and a safety clone. From time to time, I'd like to take a snapshot of my setup so I can restore in case of disaster (machine or human!). What I've been doing to do this is to make sure that everything I have installed/changed on my safety clone is done to the principal partition, and then use SD! to clone the principal partition.

So, my question is this: if I clone the safety clone, will SD! copy the symbolic links to the principal partition as links, or will it resolve the links? Or, put another way, is cloning the safety clone the same thing as cloning the main partition itself, or do I just get a clone of the safety clone?
