You can do a few things - In the photoshop duotone options (the box
where you set what colours you want in the duotone curve), change the
name of the spot colour to match the illustrator name. (the space
before the U matters).
Or else you can access the Ink manager in InD, and assign one of the
spots to print as the other. (I think the pulldown menu is on the
swatches pallette for the Ink manager).
I haven't got access to indesign right at this minute, so hopefully
I've told you the right things!
