Fleance, Banquo's son, escapes when Macbeth tries to have him killed along with his father. This could cause Macbeth problems because the witches have predicted that Banquo will be the father of kings. With Fleance free, the witches prophecy has a chance of coming true. In actuality, James I of England ( who had been James VI of Scotland) traced his lineage through Fleance.

Fleance escapes and the conflict this could cause in the future is that Fleance knows that Macbeth killed his father and he could possibly tell someone and have Macbeth excecuted.
