Windows 2012 deuplicaiton vhdx

When I run a physical Veeamserver with deduplication turned on a Windows Server 2012 on a physical drive i get extremee good results.
I wonder, if i virtualize Veeam and my vm backups are stored in a large .vhdx fil saved on a deduplicated volume, will the system be intelligent enough to save the same amount of space? Or is it recommended to store Veeam backup file directly on the volumes?

Frank, aside from the size aspect, storing backups on virtual disk is indeed not considered as best practice.
