That's not as cold as it would have been if it were still on the
tree, out in the orchard.
It's probably just fine.
I've had problems with scions freezing in the fridge from time to
time, but I can never tell if graft failures were due to that or just
because of poor technique, timing, or lack of aftercare.
I've sometimes thought that buds on pawpaw scions were damaged and
mushy, but I can't recall any pomefruit, persimmon, or nut scions
that I thought were noticeably unsound at the time I grafted them.
