double submission better than single ones?

A simple (maybe stupid) question:
If i submit a new sequence to EMBL, is it desirable to submit the same
sequence to genbank also or is it better to let the organisations exchange
their data?
I think that there are consistent accession numbers for a single sequence 
in all databases, so if i do a double submission, how do EMBL/genbank
take care of consistency of accession numbers?
Thank you,
