Load Balancing Setup Questions

HI - i’m trying to setup my first loadbalancer and I’m a little stumped by what are likely basic questions. Hoping someone can provide insight.

My goal is to have health-check/failer from domain.com to lb.domain.com
Domain.com is at IP 123.45.67.89 for example.
I cloned the site in my hosting plan but the clone is in a shared account, also at IP 123.45.67.89
Can I have two origin servers at the same IP address - or is that EXACTLY not the point of load balancing? I.e.
Origin 1 - domain.com - IP 123.45.67.89
Origin 2 - lb.domain.com - IP 123.45.67.89

Is having the A Record for lb.domain.com pointing to IP 123.45.67.89 sufficient?
Or do I have to have it:

Origin 1 - domain.com - IP 123.45.67.89
Origin 2 - lb.domain.com - IP 567.89.10.11

If anyone has insight into this please advise.

Thanks
