I assume you mean NFS.
Yes you can do that although using NFS you will then have a single point 
of failure and in the standard NFS client configuration if you try to 
access a file which is on NFS but it is unavailable then the file access 
will hang.

So you might be better off having the files copied onto each of the 
asterisks servers local file storage or use a redundant file system such 
as gluster.
