How does dbus-daemon handle multiple services with same Name?

While trying kdbus with systemd, I have ran across a problem.
Apparently it doesn't yet properly handle multiple D-Bus services
with same name.

I'm interested in how does D-Bus daemon handle this? Which one
gets loaded and how it decides which one to load?

An example:

I have two services with Name=org.freedesktop.FileManager1

One is GNOME's Nautilus, other is MATE's Caja File Manager.
Which one would get loaded and why?
