I have a Nikon D3300.

 

It has a microphone jack built in.

 

If I bought a surround sound microphone, would the D3300 record all channels correctly, or would it be stereo only?

I'm fairly certain it's stereo only.  You might want to consider an external recorder for better sound quality.

Surround sound is achieved through some pretty fancy audio engineering. It's just regular stereo sound mixed to specific channels to create the illusion of directional sound.
