no, the dura ace bb has a spindle of 109.5, the team track will easily fit the omniums with their included 48t ring because it runs the cranks at 42mm. it's just the spindle length, which corresponds only to the bottom bracket-crank fitment, that is different between the two crank setups.
read up on how cranks, bottom brackets, and chainline is all measured and you'll understand why i'm saying it's not going to be a problem.
think of it like using a different hub knuckle and offset wheel on a car. you change out the hub(spindle/bb) and you need to run a different offset wheel(crankset) to get the right fitment(chainline)... where as if you run a set that's meant to work together it will give you the right fitment(bikes are all pretty standardized except old peugots/french and some italian bikes and single cotter designs) unlike cars. it's a bad metaphor, like pretty much every car/bicycle metaphor. i'm just trying to paint you a picture.
