Export a PDF and use the booklet feature in Acrobat. You’ll get far better results.

Which version of InDesign and OS?

Are you printing this to your own desktop printer or sending it out to a commercial printer?

I do prefer never use it print booklet feature in InDesign. I was have many strange bugs with it. As Rob says - do print booklet from Acrobat Pro, or if you have some complex imposition — use it something like Quite Imposing Plus software. Or if this is not home works publication - ask your print house to do imposition on their side, this is works for them not for you.

Remember, never say you can't do something in InDesign, it's always just a question of finding the right workaround to get the job done. © David Blatner
