Will the distributed knowledge bundles from different search heads pointing to the same search peer overwrite each other?

Path Finder

I have two separate search heads pointing to the same search peer. One search head is in production and another one is for testing. My question is that if both search heads have the same Apps but different settings or knowledge object, while the knowledge bundles get distributed to the search peer from these different search heads, will the bundles overwrite each other? I want to understand the impact and any possible corruption could happen.

Bundles are bound by the GUID of the search head initiating the search. There should be no collision of name / bundle space as the GUID's are unique, unless you have modified the configuration of the search heads so that they have the same GUIDs.
