A question on #dnd surprise, maybe for @JeremyECrawford. If a character passively perceives one monster but doesn't perceive another; is it "surprised" at all? Is it only "surprised" by the creatures they didn't perceive?

At the start of D&D combat, either you're surprised or you're not. There's no partial surprise.
