You can make a node primary during sync, or even when it does not have a 
backing device. Primary/secondary status has little to do with the 
status of the backing device, unless you do not have at least one 
UpToDate device in the resource.

Just 'drbdadm secondary <resource>' on the current primary, and 'drbdadm 
primary <resource>' on the new primary.
