It is not a problem to have a spare tire with the TPMS sensor. I have a TPMS sensor in my spare. It is not known to the active system.
I have yet to put on the spare to see what happens, but my local service manager says that the system will automatically figure out that a sensor is gone and a new sensor is in its place.
