Not with the standard servo/battery connector. (And to be more specific my current knowledge is of Spektrum/JR receivers here)
you 'actually' manage to send voltage through in reverse, that's probably a bad thing.
With the standard connector though, all you're doing is swapping ground and signal wires.
No harm. Switch it back and rock on.
Think about when you accidentally plug in a standard wall wart to an old style receiver battery the wrong way.
Nothing really happens, because you're only connected at the positive connection when the connector is backwards
