Not necessarily so. If the number of authors is large, there is no point in
copying AUTHORS into debian/copyright. Some packages of mine say in

Upstream Authors: Main Author and others. For details, see the AUTHORS file

This way, you have automatic update of the authors when updating to a new
upstream version.
