Backing up Hyper-V VMs with Windows 2019 Backup utility while Windows 2019 Hyper-V Replication is replicating every 15min

I am replicating 3 Hyper-V vm servers through a VPN and both Hyper-V hosts use Windows 2019 Standard servers.  The replications are consistent and therefore stable.  However, I want to add Windows Backup and backup the VMs to 8TB USB drives daily.
Are there any known issues, conflicts or problems with backing up both Windows 2019 Server using the Windows Backup utility while replication is enabled and replicating every 15 minutes?

That is not my preferred way of doing things. Depending on how long the backup takes I can foresee that you will get replication failures if the backup takes too long.
