I don't understand the question. Back focus usually refers to the problem where the camera focuses behind the actual subject at the AF point.

This is incorrect behavour, and the camera need to be fixed if it is doing it.

The camera will focus based on the focus points you can
see through the viewfinder. If you want back focus, and
there are closer objects on these points, you will likely
have to switch to manual focus. The camera will always
try to focus on the closest object.

As for it being a problem... I do find that a number of
my pictures have a back focusing problem. It's not something
that happens all the time. I notice it the most when I'm
taking a picture of two people, and I think it might be
picking up the background between them and around them and
focusing there. It's annoying, but since it only happens
some of the time, I can't really blame the camera yet...
