Geocoding api returning different responses

We are seeing a large number of requests to the mapquest geocoding api endpoint returning different responses for the exact same request.

Its like your server configuration behind a load ballancer has 3 or more servers each running different versions.

Please resolve this ASAP as it is affecting the acuracy of data we are returning our customers.

e.g.:
HTTP GET
https://www.mapquestapi.com/geocoding/v1/address?key=XXXXXX&location=290...

For address:   2903 Creekside Dr,,Newark,DE,19711-6767

Returns:
