By the original definition, a Network Operating System is any computer Operating System that has the ability to connect to a network. So, yes.

However, from the context of your question, I'm guessing that you are looking for a domain controller / directory services application, that provides user authentication and group policy/access controls. In that case, yes, OS-X server is such a beast.
