Given the deep root system of Black Beauty, should I be concerned with the grass negatively impacting the performance of a septic system leach field? Should I avoid using it over the leach field or near the leach field and having the grass spread into the area?

Black Beauty Grass seed will not negatively impact your leach field. Although the roots are deep, they are fine. You can keep this field in great shape by helping to keep the soil loose, aerated, and free of excess water. Planting grass can help with this as the grass plants will prevent erosion and suck up some of the excess moisture from the drain field.
