Should be pretty close. Differences may be due to
a. JMeter has to parse the response for case b but doesnt have to do so for
Case A. if your client is loaded then this may be significant
b. The proxy records everything the browser requests. So if a CSS has a
background image specified , it will be requested and recorded. The JMeter
parser will request resources that are directly on the page i.e. the CSS
file it wont parse the CSS file itself to download additional resources that
the page might use.
However the value should be close enough
