Bit-perfect AAC/MP3/etc decoding?, Is it an issue?

Sorry if this is easily answered elsewhere.

My question is that in a comparison of lossy-format decoders between, let's say, iTunes and Foobar and Winamp, will the output (edit: of a single source file) vary between decoding implementations?

Or is it that once a decoder follows a specified format, all output is equal assuming there are no bugs?

Even if hardware would be perfectly ideal and considering best human hearing abilities, still the precision of MP3 decoding (24 bits) is excessively high.

P.S. The last Apollo player has a ridiculously precise MP3 decoder in 24 bits mode. http://koti.welho.com/hylinen/apollo/FAQ.html
