nmap OS detection providing different results

When running against non-Windows hosts (AIX), I've noticed that nmap's
OS detection (nmap -O) doesn't provide the same results all of the
time. About 1/5 scans nmap fails to find the remote hosts when run

Is this expected? Would pasting the OS signature that returns when the
current ones fail into nmap-os-db and submitting to nmap.org be a
reasonable workaround?
