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.
