D800 auto ISO & flash (SB-900 & build-in)

Can you tell me why D800 's auto ISO works differently with on-board flash than

SB-900 (or 910)?

With build in flash, camera sets ISO as if no flash exists and then uses the flash as a fill

light.

With SB-900, camera sets ISO only 1-2 stops higher than the minimum set, and the rest of light

is covered by the SB-900.

I find the 1st approach a lot better and is a pity that is not followed for the SB-900

approach, too. Does anybody knows why this happens?
