How the heck does that work in the event of unreliable airspeed ? A/T carries on setting thrust based on known bad air data ?!

Or is it that sometimes A/T will drop out, but you can't force it to drop out ? I thought one of the key issues of the great A v B FBW debate was that B allowed you to override it ?
