I´m shotting 35mm black and white, in some exteriors I am going to use lights, I am
going away to handle with the Kodak film plus x 5231 for the outer
days and double x 5222 for interiors and exteriors nights. In some
outer days I am going to use lights so that we must play with
reflections on glasses. I do not have budget for HMI and here the
doubt, as comes film 5231 80 ISO light day and 64 ISO tungsten. The question is if it would have to filter
my lights as if color to obtain the balance of wished exhibition was a
film or no. For years it has been filming two projects in black and
white but never it mixes lights.
Sorry my ingles is very bad

Whenever I've shot B & W in daylight, I never bothered to correct the tungsten to daylight and there was never any problems regarding exposure. It was commonly done on the B & W feature films, you can see loads of production stills with tungsten lights being used as fill.

I even did it on a Digibeta commercial that was going to end up in B & W - only problem there was the agency rather liked the look and the director had to persuade them to keep to the original B & W idea.

You could shoot a quick test on the glasses shot if you're worried about it.
