That is a very interesting question. Most information about rooting or starting ponytail cuttings talks about the little offshoots,
but many people have also reported great success rooting the cut-off tops. Ponytail palms are actually related to the yuccas, and the rooting procedure should be quite similar. I'd say give it a try - what have you got to lose, since you have to move the plant anyway - and let us know how it works for you.
