I am not sure if I've understood your scenario correctly but I think I can still answer your question. Basically, if a Monitor is dependant on another Monitor which is presently failing, all alerting will be suppressed on the former. Even if the Monitor is a member of 12 different groups and 8 different Alerts, as soon as any of its Dependencies fail, the Monitor's Alerting will be supressed... unless it fails before the Dependency of course.
Does this answer your question?
