No, it needs to output an integer (without crashing or anything odd like
that), but it is free to choose what integer, as long as is it consistent.
I don't have the standard in front of me, so beware of errors, but it would
AFAIK be allowed to e.g. convert all overflowing numbers to 12345.

Not that this would be very useful behavior, of course.
