No, it does not:
"Biannual is an adjective which means occurring twice a year, the adverb
form is biannually. Biannual is derived from the prefix bi-, which means
two, twice, double, doubly, as it comes from the Latin bi-, meaning
twice, double, and annual comes from the Old French twelfth century
word, annuel, which derives from the Latin annus, year."
