Only if the click sends the browser to a redirection script on his site, 
or at the ad server site (which sends him logs).
There could also be some kind of javascript onclick event that tracks it.

But I think your hunch is right-- if you've only got 20 instances of an 
HTTP_REFERER from his site in your logs, there's probably only been 20 
clicks, and certainly not 5000.
