Well, know. If they are a cluster then the streamer itself needs to 
provide e.g. the same password and so on to enable listing as a 
But if they have both the same streaming URL and request comes from 
the same IP you can be really sure they are the same server. 
Otherwise, if they come from different IPs but with same URL, 
somebody would have the ability to list your server on the YP himself 
and change your "currently playing" etc. Right?
