Any furnace will back or down draft under the right conditions. My indoor furnace will do it about once a year. An out door furnace is more likely to do it when the chimney is short.

Yes, a draft may come down. But not a constant flow of fresh air to fuel a fire. Not possible, the fire would start, heat would increase and rise and would force air to stop blowing in which would choke fire back out.

This might help explain what is happening. I had to install a taller stack on my woodburner to prevent the backflow when it was burning. I would even get gusts of cold air out of the woodburner in high winds.
