According to this bug report, 


dpkg-buildpackage uses the email address given in the changelog, which
means if you use the other mail address and there is only one key
associated with this address you should be fine. 
If you have more then one key in your key ring that is related to this
address then you may get into trouble, because one key is selected by
chance, and if this is not the one you used in launchpad, then it will
not accept the package.
