Without fencing, when a communication or membership issues arises, it's
hard to predict what will happen.

I don't see anything in the short log snippet to indicate what happened.
What's on the other node during the event? When did the node disappear
and when was it rejoined, to help find relevant log entries?

Going forward, if you want predictable and reliable operation, implement
fencing asap. Fencing is required.
