Current sharing in paralleled power modules?

Hello,
We are going to put these VTM modules in parallel…
VTM module datasheet:
http://cdn.vicorpower.com/documents/datasheets/VTM48E_020_080A00.pdf

The VTM modules are described as "Fixed Ratio Voltage converters".
They will each have the same Vin, and feed into the same 15milliohm load, however the PCB trace resistance to this load is different from each VTM module output (1 milliohm vs 2 milliohm)…as shown in the schematic and “equivalent” LTspice simulation.

The simulation shares current very poorly between the two VTM modules…..will this happen in real life?

Does the chip output act as a current source?

If that's the case, i wouldn't expected different output in regards to current.
