if you have an identity column on b_dupe table you should also set the identity insert as...

SET IDENTITY_INSERT b_dupe ON

INSERT INTO b_dupe
SELECT *
FROM a_dupe
0

Actually if you have an IDENTITY column you need to explicitly name all your columns.  Also, don't forget to turn off INDENTITY_INSERT once done.
