The primary vPC device will not block it's associated ports if the peer link fails. The secondary will block it's vPC member port and the SVI's for any VLANs that are carried by the peer link.

No. It just determines who forwards in the event of a peer link failure.  And some management tasks.

But nothing to do with forwarding.
