No, this function shouldn't print anything, and it prints nothing,
The value of xx is printed by the read-eval-print loop. When this occurs
the function funx has already been left, and the dynamic bindings that
were in effect have been undone.

If you really want xx to be printed at your program's run time, then do

(defun funx () (let ((*special* t)) (print xx)))
