Well, what's the config of your so-called "secondary nameserver"?

Does it just forward to the "primary"?

If so, then that's where the queries will be seen to originate, by the
vulnerability-testing tools.

Another possibility is that you have a NAPT device multiplexing both
your "primary" and "secondary" nameservers into single address. Since it
would need to use different port numbers to accomplish this, the exact
implementation/configuration details of the NAPT would have an effect on
whether you get a "good" or "ok" result from the vulnerability-testing
tools.
