On a lathe, the wood spins, not the drill bit. The wood is also held firmly in place in some sort of chuck. In addition to that, your head stock and tail stock are (or had better be) perfectly aligned. There is no margin for error like with a drill press. A brad point will work on a lathe as well but from my understanding a little more finesse is needed when starting the cut.
