maybe its cause computers will only resort to secondary DNS if they cannot contact primary DNS so if your primary DNS responds but lets say its broken and does not give the correct info or returns an unknown  to will accept it and not attempt to contact the secondary.  secondary DNS is only used if no contact at all with primary DNS can be established I know this is not specific to your question but maybe its work bearing in mind as to why it did not use the secondary  good luck  hope this helped

Simple question but I have to ask, Do you have the zone configured on both DNS servers?  Are they ADI zones or primary and secondary?

DNS fault tolerance in Exchange 2007 : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb676467(EXCHG.80).aspx

Local DNS settings for the server are ignored,  configure the external DNS server settings on the External DNS Lookups tab in the transport server properties in the Exchange Management Console, or by using the Set-TransportServer cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell.

so my External Dns Lookups is using my Network card DNS settings
do you think its a good idea to add more DNS (external FREE DNS) in my tcp/ip of my NIC ??
or use "check" use this dns server and add some free server ?
