Shaping mismatch

Let's say a Service Provider is selling one of their 100Mbps Circuit going to an MPLS backbone. If the Service Provider is shaping at a value of 85Mbps and the customer is shaping at a value of 100Mbps, what would happen to traffic from the customer if it is between 85Mbps and 100Mbps? More specifically, if the customer has a priority class of 20% for Voice, since the traffic is never hitting shaping rate on the customer side but it is on the Service Provider side, will the Voice traffic be queue'd and even dropped on the service provider QoS?

Thank you
