backport dependencies

I should know this better.

I'm using exim4 on Woody via backports.org:

  deb http://www.backports.org/debian/ woody exim4

I'm not clear how dependencies work with this.  If I go to update the
system it wants to install the following:

exim4-config, exim4-base, libgpg-error0, libgcrypt11, libopencdk8,
libtasn1-2, libgnutls11, and exim4-daemon-heavy.

If that's the only backports entry I have in sources.list, then will
only packages in the http://www.backports.org/debian/dists/woody/exim4/
tree get fetched?

I'm just wondering if dependencies can fetch outside of that path.
