Which contract is better? 1NT or 2 of Major.

First the scenario.

Opener has balanced hand 12-13 HCP with 5 Spades.

Responder has 6-11 HCP balanced hand with 2 Spades.

1NT opening is 14-16 HCP and may have 5 card Major.

There is no interference from the opponents.

If you play 2/1 the bidding will go:

1S-1NT

2x-2S

If you play Standard American the bidding will go:

1S-1NT

Pass

I did a simulation of the scenario and it showed that 

1NT contract is much better than 2 Spades.

Am I correct or I am missing something?
