Another query about the Hadith on being two faced

Question

Regarding the Hadith:

من كان ذا وجهين في الدنيا كان له يوم القيامة لسانان من نار

In most copies of Zadut Talibin I have referred to, the Hadith has the word لسان (singular). The reference in Zadut Talibin is Abu Dawud and Darimi. When I referred to Abu Dawud and Darimi,  the Hadith appears with the word لسانان (dual).

I found a Pakistani print of Mishkatul Masabih wherein the Hadith appears with the word لسان (singular) whereas other prints of Mishkatul Masabih have the word لسانان (plural).

Is the word لسان in the Pakistani print of Mishkatul Masabih a printing error and since Zadut Talibin is compiled from Mishkatul Masabih, most prints of Zadut Talibin have the same error?
