    Just to add further on these answers. You need to have similar content on both versions of sitemaps. Don't engage in cloaking or giving a different content for search engines spiders to avoid possible problems in the future.

    You need to submit only one sitemap.xml for each site however user sitemap is generated by web developer as default. You need not to submit it anywhere..
