dump/restore corrupted filesystems

I have a 1.2TB UFS2 filesystem with irrecoverable corruption. As such, I
must move all 500GB or so of data off of it and re-newfs it.

Does anybody know whether dump/restore can gracefully handle filesystem
corruption, or will it happily back up and restore said damage to the
pristine filesystem?
