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.
