I think it can if the check valve fails...

Either that or the hydraulic servo can.  I know, I had a car which did that.

The pedal would sink almost to the floor with no effect, at which point,
you did get UNASSISTED braking... you had to stomp really hard to stop
the car.  After a minute or so, all was fine (unless you pumped the
pedal at which point it would sink towards the floor again).

Check the brake servo for leaks first.
