If you're supposed to be learning a particular new technique by practicing it in response to a specific attack, uke needs to do that attack correctly. And,

uke has to attack with real intent.

But if you're already familiar with a technique and are doing randori or adding resistance, uke should be able to improvise and nage should be able to counter without either being considered "wrong."
