That's basically the same standard as contest log checking.  If you bust
the other station's call or exchange, but they record all of the QSO details
correctly, the other station still gets credit for the contact.

The only difference with DX logs and contest logs is that a human is making
those judgements in the DX log, whereas a computer algorithm is making the 
judgements in the contest log.
