The path is in the SQL Server's perspective, so you would still use the same path as before unless you wanted to back it up to a different server. In that case, then use a full UNC path for a resource that the SQL Server service has access to.

Depending on the size of the database and network speed , take into account the extra time the UNC path backup may take.This could be a factor if it is a time duration sensitive task
