As may be.  I was just answering your question:

Ostensibly, nothing.  It owns no resources, so shouldn't affect the cluster.  

A worst-case scenario would be the active node crashing while the passive node is rebooting, but there's nothing you can do about that.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Rebooting a Passive server should have zero impact on the Active server.  

And even if you lost the Active server while the Passive server was rebooting, you'll be surprised how robust Microsoft clustering is.

Reboot away.
