Your base environment will be able to access the contents of all of your jails no problem. Shouldn't be any problems making backups. The only possible problem I can think of that you might run into is if you have UIDs in the jail(8) that don't exist in the base system, but you'ld have to choose a pretty incompetent backup system if it couldn't cope with that.
