Why are you comparing the web interface of the OSM hosted interface with the API of the MapQuest? hosted instance?

I'm sure if you compare like with like they will be consistent, but the two instances may well be running different versions of the software, which may give different results for a given query.

OSM has probably more up-to-date search indexes in this case because of some recent database maintenance.

In any case, if you find results missing in the MapQuest? instance, it is certainly better to report that in their bug tracker.
