I wouldn't imagine it would drain back into the engine. Two reasons.

1) Pretty much defeats the purpose of a oil seperator (In a way)

2) The oil it would capture would be milky and contaminated.

If it does drain back in there. This would be an excellent reason to use a high quality oil and filter.
