Yes. NDS® Section 18.104.22.168 states that, "The load duration factor for the shortest duration load in a combination of loads shall apply for that load combination." NDS Appendix B provides some additional discussion as does the NDS Commentary Chapter 2 at http://www.awc.org/Standards/ndscommentary.html.
Hope this information helps.

I would like to know if one can use the 1.25 Roof Load Duration "CD"
stress increase for members at stories below roof level, where these
members besides carrying the roof load are also carrying live load of
floors below (Sec. 22.214.171.124 T 2.3.2, 2001 CBC, 1997 UBC, 2002 L.A.B.C.)
