Not at ALL, it will run in Xen Ring.
That means it will run in virtual container and the Desktop OS,
which almost certainly is not DragonFly will run in another container.

If you can read german, there is a draft paper about a cluster i implemented
at my Uni that uses still UML to do the virtualization but soon will switch
to Xen.

If there is interest i can make a short english paper.
