Hitec Servo Question

This is my first project using all digital Hitec servos. My question is: Are these new digital servos stable if I switch the input signal into the servo — between sources — while keeping power connected? I know old analog servos would have a nervous breakdown if I switched sources while the servo was under power. I know the new digital ones have a safe position. Should I program this, cut the signal from the primary source, wait for the servo to go to a safe position, then switch on source B?
