Probably. The auxiliary system is designed to come on when the temperature drops to a certain point. Assuming that the heat pump is the primary source, if the heat drops below a set point the furnace should come on.

Of course, if neither the heat pump or the furnace are receiving power or is the problem is with the thermostat then you could run into a problem.

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
