    Being such busy sites, I'm sure they are both located on several servers each (for the sake of load balancing, backup, etc.).  www.yahoo.com and mail.yahoo.com have different IP addresses, but if you ping www.yahoo.com a few times, you'll see that it has multiple IPs itself - 216.109.118.75 / 66.94.230.39 / 216.109.118.75 being three that I got.  Presumably, these servers are located in different places, too.  Given that both sites are spread out over multiple servers, I doubt there are any cases where you have a server hosting both domains.

    Most websites don't work this way as they don't have the level of traffic that would justify it.  They'll either run on a single server or a main server and a backup.
