Precinct Scanner vs Central Scanner

Should a precinct scanner and a central scanner use the same criteria
for recognizing marks?

That is assuming that there is a voter verification procedure along
the general lines described in some recent messages here.

Everybody seems to assume that the choice is binary. A bubble is
marked or not marked. There no way for the scanner to say to the
voter "I'm not sure". I suppose that the law wouldn't permit such a
thing.

If there is a difference between the recognition used in the central
scanner and precinct scanner, what would be?
