As the lamps are a higher wattage than the ballast it may well mean that the ballast will be working harder than it is designed for and sooner or later will stop working.

As T5 Ballasts are electronic it will just stop.

Its the old wire wound ballasts found on some T8 and metal halide lights that are more likely to catch fire but even this is rare.
