No, the pasteboard is specific to each page. It could not really work 
any other way, just consider objects that are partly off the page, 
i.e., they are both on the page and on the pasteboard.

Of course, the behaviour depends on whether you are on a body layer or 
on a master layer. Objects on a master layer appear on every page and 
that includes objects on the pasteboard (do not forget that the 
pasteboard is layered, too!). Of course, in order to get it onto the 
page area you still have to use the clipboard because there is no 
other way to copy objects between layers, even on the same page.
