Where does the faceoff go if the team about to get a 5-minute powerplay ices the puck?

I'm not sure whether I've actually ever seen a delayed major penatly in the first place, but assuming that there wasn't an immediate whistle due to injury and/or a scrum, where would they drop the puck if it's iced?

On a normal penalty it goes to the PP team's defending blue line, which I agree is a good rule, but since majors are so egregious that they already go all out and award 5 full minutes of unlimited PP time, the faceoff should go the the offensive zone no matter what. Anyone know what the rule is?

    Offensive zone face off for the team with the power play. Unlikely to happen, but the draw would be in the offensive zone for the team that has the 5-minute PP.
