timelinex, range focus and parallax adjustment are both the same thing on scopes that have a "parallax adjustment."
If the range focus is out of adjustment and the aiming eye's off the optical axis of the scope, there'll always be parallax.
If you're referring to the eye piece focus on the reticule being off, then the reticule will be out of focus but the target image will be in perfect focus if the range focus is where the eye piece focus is.
