Almost the same.

ICB 2000
1617.6.3 Combination along the same axis
 R<= R of least of any system in that same direction

exception: For light frame, flexible diaphragm buildings, of Seismic Use
Group I and two stories or less in height: Resisting elements are permitted
to be designed using the least value of R for the different structural
systems found on each independent line of resistance. The value of R used
for design of diaphragms in such sturctures shall not be greater than the
least value for any of the syems utilized in that same direction.
