What are your rights and obligations when you don't know who hessitated at the other side?

2/1 vs. Precision
@Robert: In one of my partnerships, we open 14-16 1NT in 1st and 2nd and in 3rd NV. We go down 200 sometimes in 1NT after 1x-1y-1NT (which is why we don't play 14-16 V in 3rd seat). And we play 2NT as 19-20 in these positions.
