search - Lucene scoring results

In Lucene if you had multiple indexes that covered only one partition each. Why does the same search on different indexes return results with different scores? The results from different servers match exactly.

i.e. if I searched for :

  • Name - John Smith
  • DOB - 11/11/1934

Partition 0 would return a score of 0.345

Partition 1 would return a score of 0.337

Both match exactly on name and DOB.
