SLAVEOF hostname port will stop
the replication against the old server and start the synchronization against the
new one, discarding the old dataset.

MASTER, but will not discard the replication.
So, if the old master stops working, it is possible to turn the replica into a
master and set the application to use this new master in read/write.
