Can the files that back an md device be resident on an nfs mount?

I run some jails with each having its own root based on an md  
device.  I am thinking of having a backend nfs server have all the  
storage and serve it to various front end servers.  If one front end  
server went down I could easily bring it up on another one.  Kind of  
poor-man's redundancy
