I don't think they are synonyms:

Paging doesn't necessarily mean pagination in computing:

  1. From the Wikipedia article on Paging

    In computer operating systems, paging is one of the memory-management schemes by which a computer can store and retrieve data from secondary storage for use in main memory.

  2. Paging can refer to the act of reading data tables page by page (credit to @Ian Ringrose)

  3. Paging can refer to the act of sending data to a pager (credit to @Al Everett)

...where as pagination is to divide up copy into pages, as one might do when designing a UI.
