Nope. AAC is lossy but better than MP3. You may be thinking of ALAC - Apple Lossless Audio Codec.
Just to add to the confusion, here’s a clip from a good Wikipedia article:

"Apple Lossless data is frequently stored within an MP4 container with the filename extension .m4a. This extension is also used by Apple for lossy AAC audio data in an MP4 container (same container, different audio encoding). However, Apple Lossless is not a variant of AAC (which is a lossy format), but rather a distinct lossless format that uses linear prediction similar to other lossless codecs.”
