Wireless flash with A9, HVL-43M and HVL-32M -- suppress on-camera controller flash?

I have just bought an HVL-43M flash unit to complement the HVL-32M I had already, and in the hope I could use it as a controller. At a first test session, that all seems to work straightforwardly.

One thing I had hoped to be able to do was also to use the HVL-43M as a pure controller, with its flash completely suppressed and relying completely on the off-camera HVL-32M. But I can't work out how to do that. Reading the manual, and the information on the web at https://support.d-imaging.sony.co.jp/support/acc/flash/en/wireless/practice.html it seems it ought to be possible.

I can use the ratio setting to set that to 1, and the external flash to 16 -- is that the closest I can come? Any help welcomed.

Thanks.
