Turn that around: if the primary airport is below VFR, you need an SVFR clearance to operate below the ceiling in the class E surface area. That's what's being controlled by the wx at the primary airport.

Having established that SVFR is required within the surface area, they're trying to keep you from departing the satellite airport with 1/2 mile visibility just because the primary airport is, for example, reporting 1 1/2 miles. They're expecting the pilot to assess local conditions and determine that SVFR minima exist at the satellite airport.
