I wonder if anyone here can share some experiences or the best practice in backing up the Linux VM or physical host that host the XFS Immutable backup repository?

It is not recommended to run LHBR as a VM simply because a attacker can get access to the underlying hypervisor and just delete the whole VM.
If you use physical server to run LHBR I would recommend to follow the 3-2-1 rule and with that have multiple copies of the backup.
Following that means that a backup of the server itself should not be needed as if you loose it you still got other places the copy is stored.

I agree with what has already been said. The proper procedure if it is lost should be a rebuild of the repository from scratch. And for the data itself, backups replication.
