Even if his vent pipe is too far down inside his black tank it shouldn't leak. Fix the leak.

It could just be the weight of the water causing it to leak at a poorly sealed joint. Fix the leak

Even IF the vent is plugged or dropped into the liquid as soon as you flush the tank is vented and liquid will flow in (and gasses out) until the tank is full. This is given that the toilet empties into the top of the tank, hard to imagine otherwise.
