Two studio-strobe problem with Nikon D750

I recently received a 2-strobe kit, namely two Metz BL-400s, and I've tried to set them to trigger optically using the D750 built-in flash in commander mode (CMD). Specifically, in the D750 Custom Menu setting e3, I've set the built-in flash to CMD and to '--' so that only the pre-flash fires and not the actual flash. But doing this only triggers one of the strobes, not both.

I realize that probably nobody here has a D750/BL-400 combo, but does anybody with any other 2-strobe brand that has been set up to trigger optically in this way by the D750 had a similar problem? If so, how do you fix this without having to buy wireless transmitters or use a sync cable?
