Same Receive Connector on two different servers?

Last Modified: 2015-09-09
I have acquired temporary role of managing two Exchange 2010 servers. I understand most of the basics but one thing I'm not sure on is Receive Connectors.

Both the Exchange 2010 servers under Server Configuration > Hub Transport appear to have a couple of matching Receive Connector entries.

They are literally called the same thing with the same FQDN.

Would that be causing a conflict? Should each hub transport server have unique receive connectors? I don't show any errors or warnings about this, so it seems to allow it.
