Duplicate Identity column

Microsoft SQL Server 2005

I have experienced an issue where a table that has an identity column had two records with the same value in the identity column. The table was an article in a merge publication.
Can anyone suggest how this duplication of the identity column occurred ? and whether or not, an error would have been logged somewhere ?
A third party has since made changes and the data is no longer in the same state so I am now unable to do any meaningful checks on the data.
