This doesn't happen.  The sender's exchange is the master, which the 
receiver's log has to match.

Of course, the sender's log has to accurately record what was sent over the 
air.  Every year in the 10M contest we get logs where the log shows one 
location, and EVERY OTHER LOG IN THE CONTEST shows a different received 
location for that station.  This generally happens where somebody guest ops 
at a station in another state.

Speaking for the 10M contest, we take steps to catch these and get it 
corrected rather than let everybody who claims a QSO with this station lose it.
