Can't you formulate a proper question?

As for what you might have asked:

a) Normal TCP/IP stacks do verify the checksums, and if a mismatch occurs
the packet is dropped and the sender is notified with an
ICMP_INVALID_DATAGRAM message
b) some high-performance implementation may decide to not verify the
checksums under big load
