If you are conducting a top-class orchestra, they will have a reputation to protect. If you are making a complete dog's breakfast of a performance, the orchestra will go into auto-pilot mode and ignore you completely; so from your point of view, the sound you produce from them will be just fine.
Do not however, EVER attempt to conduct them again. Orchestral players know countless tricks for making a conductor's life a misery.
