phantom power w/ daw

i was wanting to know if i have to record seperately with my condensers that require phantom power than with my dynamic mics that dont require it. my mackie cfx16 board has one master phantom power switch and it seems like a bad idea to feed phantom power to my dynamics that dont require it. is this true or would i be fine having it on while mics that dont need it are plugged in???

Most dynamic mics are fine with phantom up them

Please check the owners manual if you have Ribbon mics
