They cannot. All network cards are serial devices. They cannot deliver
1000 or even 2 requests at the same time. 
Sso you still have not been very clear as to what you want.

YOu will get massive network congestion and collisions if you try. So
yes there will be lots of failures all attributed to the network. YOu
still have not told us what you really want. Why doyou want the answer
to these questions?

The dominant rate limiter is the network-- even if you have a 1Gb
network-- switches, interrupts, etc.

You keep being given the answer and you keep asking.
