Does the system automatically note such results or do we need to report them for further inquiry?

Automatically.

The same task is sent to somebody else (Max to 10 Computers as you can see by "max # of error/total/success tasks 5, 10, 5"

)

... until at least 2 results match.

Until at least 2 closely match or 3 loosely match. It is entirely possible for the first two results to be inconclusive and the third be a loose match with both - so all get credit.
