Tmac, One of my hives did just that this May. My mentor and I split them the next day, but they swarmed afterward anyway. We think the first swarm attempt somehow did not get the queen along for the ride. The resulting swarm, post-split, was the result of not doing a normal split wherein the old queen is moved to a new location and hive body. After that, they became honey-bound.
