Is breaking the back button a WCAG 2.0 accessibility failure?

The back button is said to be the most used out of all the buttons on a web browser so if the user presses the back button and instead of taking them back to the previous screen it reloads the entire page and takes them to the home page, is that an accessibility failure?

I know it's terrible usability.
