From my research, the computer should expect to receive only 1 response because the computer mentioned in the request sends the response and all other computers process and discard the request without sending a response.

Yes.
There should be only one device coresponding to one IP.

This and only this device will respond to the question: who has this IP ? (or can route to this IP for that matter)
