Question on certificates before deep dive into EAP-TLS

As a (hopefully) answer-able question to those experienced with EAP-TLS
been twisting my brain:
Usually I've seen example for EAP-TLS setups that used a server-side
issued from the same CA as the one it should allow EAP-TLS clients who
their certificate to FR.
Am I guessing correctly that CA_file can contain a different list of CA(s)
than the server certificate that is shown to the client? (Taken from
Debian's FR 2.1.12)
certificate_file = "/etc/freeradius/ssl/cert.p
# Trusted Root CA list
CA_file = "/etc/univention/ssl/ucsCA/CAcert.pem"
The real-life example would be that people could use PEAP-MSCHAPv2 for
credential-based logins (server certificate being signed by a "trusted"
while some devices could login using EAP-TLS but only when they present
a certificate from an internal CA (that usually isn't being trusted by
outside of control of IT department).
