Depends on the drum machine, I'd think.  My old Studio 440 could do that; 
used to use it that way in the studio all the time.  We'd set the 440 to
play -- which would cause it to stand by -- then fly in either Clock or
MTC/SMPTE.  Once it received some sort of sync code it'd start right up.
We'd then juggle through the patterns manually.

Of course, Dave Smith was way ahead of his time.  I don't see why there
shouldn't be other drum machines out there that could do the same thing,
