Welcome to Nikonians!

I'm not sure what you've read (or where you've read it), but I see no real reason why focusing this particular combination should present any problems

Focusing a fast telephoto is always more critical because of the potentially very shallow depth of field; the D800 won't make this any worse.

Some D800's do seem to suffer from mis-calibration of the left-most AF sensors (that's a discussion for our D800 Forum - let's not get into it here except to say that Nikon have shown that they are able to fix it) which might make it more likely that a subject will fall outside the shallow DoF in some circumstances.
