Does duplicating a Query make it run twice?

Hi there, 
I am duplicating a query and wondering if I do so, when I hit refresh, will it also run the duplicate seperately even though it has the same source? Or is it smart enough to only run the first one and know that its the same source anyways so no reason to run the 2nd?
