Smartctl Knows If It Slips

I have smartctl configured to run short tests on all my hard drives but I wonder if it slips one, what would happen.

donato@desktop:~$ less /var/log/syslog|grep sdd
Dec 14 08:30:31 desktop smartd[1444]: Device: /dev/sdd [SAT], SMART Usage Attribute: 190 Airflow_Temperature_Cel changed from 74 to 68
Dec 14 08:30:31 desktop smartd[1444]: Device: /dev/sdd [SAT], SMART Usage Attribute: 194 Temperature_Celsius changed from 26 to 32
Dec 14 08:30:31 desktop smartd[1444]: Device: /dev/sdd [SAT], old test of type S not run at Sat Dec 10 23:00:00 2016 PHT, starting now.
Dec 14 08:30:31 desktop smartd[1444]: Device: /dev/sdd [SAT], starting scheduled Short Self-Test.

This is part of the logs in the 14th reporting that indeed smartctl did not run the test once. It started a short test immedietely.
