Not at all.
If you have a'2 a'4 and a4 a2 in the score simultaneously,
*in 3/4 time*
the three beats should be spaced evenly.

\score {
\notes \transpose c'' <
\context Staff = sa \repeat unfold 2 <
\time 3/4
\context Voice = va { \voiceOne a,2 a,4  }
\context Voice = vb { \voiceOne a4 a2 }

It's clearer wider.  :-)

The important thing there is that the note on the 3rd beat
be visually spaced equidistant from the last two notes
of a measure triplet.  It is.
