a2ps and orientation of a second side of a print

When I print a text file using a2ps with two columns per page, the
second side (back side) of a page is oriented opposite to what gv shows:
I am printing a source file using the a2ps command:
> a2ps --line-numbers=1 --highlight-level heavy -s 2 testfile.h -o
When I open the p.ps file in gv, gv shows it in landscape mode. The
first page of the PS file has the 1st and 2nd pages of the text file. I
can go forward to the second page and am able to read the 3rd and 4th
page of the text file. However, when I print it to a duplex printer, and
I look at the first side of the page, I have to flip it vertically
(along the longer side) to look at the second side of the sheet. If I
flip it horizontally instead, along the left side when reading the first
page, the orientation of the second side is of course upside down.
Hopefully I have explained this properly.
Is this the expected behaviour?
