The only way to know *for sure* under all scenarios is for your
application to send explicit ACKs of message receipt.
However, most applications don't really need such a strong level of
knowledge. Most applications can simply assume that if the nodes are in
the same membership, then they are receiving the same messages, which is
usually true unless they crash or a network partition occurs. Then nodes
can conduct some kind of reconciliation after a membership change if you
need better knowledge of who actually received what.
