Do access groups and users have to be in the same database you're securing?

I thought the answer was no, but now I'm confused.

I have a database with an 'access to' line allowing members of a group to edit 
it.  Originally I had it set to a group that was in the same database but 
containing users who were in a different database.  This was working.  I then 
tried changing it to a group in the database where the users are located and 
it stopped working.  This feels inconsistent to me.  Is there a rule here that 
I should know?
