Results will vary based on each individual camera and lens, so it's hard to make a general statement in this regard. Test your lens at various focal lengths to see if it suffers from FF/BF using the steps described here:

Fixing Front and Back Focus - Introduction - In-Depth Articles

Hopefully, no adjustments will be needed, or the results will be consistent across all the focal lengths. If not, you may need to get the camera and lens adjusted professionally.
