Sure, I can have multiple CNAMES pointing to the same IP address, for example:

mysite.com -> 192.168.1.30
othersite.com -> 192.168.1.30
thirdsite.org -> 192.168.1.30

When I type 192.168.1.30 into my browser, the server won't know which website I'm asking for, so it will return either the default website for that server, or an error.
