Always.  Even the results given by whois.internet.net (ne
whois.crsnic.net) are completely distinct, and unambiguous, provided you
supply the _nearly critical_ options ("dump" and a "=" prefix, see
sample below).  Those two microsoft.com's are both registered by NSI. 
The first is a nameserver, the second a domain.


	$ whois -V microsoft.com
	Connecting to whois.crsnic.net.
	Query string: "dump =microsoft.com"

	Whois Server Version 1.3

	Domain names in the .com, .net, and .org domains can now be registered
	with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
	for detailed information.
