Not unless it has recently changed.  I've never been able to
boot a machine with duplicate root labels.
Well..I have. Not intentionally; I was direct-backing up (with dd) all but 1 of my data partitions onto another drive, so that included the volume labels. It still booted the correct partitions, until I used a kernel which no longer saw the correct partitions; then it tried to use the backup ones, didn't find the swap or the partition I didn't back up, and kernel panicked. I was confused for a bit until I figured out it what it was doing. But it did boot, with a duplicate root label.
