Almost.  A node that has multiple replies may send only a few back to a peer 
that has low trust and more to a peer that has high trust (where the exact 
definition of "a few" and "more" depends on the load of the node and the size 
of the individual responses).  Similarly, the query may be forwarded to more 
other peers for high-trust inquiries.  But the distinction is always load-
based and for an idle node the result would be exactly the same.
