Unless the names represent NICs on different VLANs and  programs need to use 
one or the other to reach a machine. Perfect example a machine that somehow 
acts as a data mover may only have access to the internal VLAN. Such machine 
would need to use only the internal names.

Another example could be performance. Perhaps there are different 
switches/routers/routes.. on the internal side and it is more efficient to 
use the internal network for certain functions.
