Unless the system clocks are reasonably well synchronised, combining
results can cause problems for throughput calculations, as the elapsed
time may be adversely affected.

Also, note that the same test is run on each server node, so running
with a single JMeter server instead of two will result in running half
the number of samples.

You may find it better to use two independent non-GUI runs and combine
the results later.
