Boeing just issued a statement on their website:

Boeing Statement on AOA Disagree Alert

Plus it takes time to compare the two values, and trigger the AOA disagree warning.
Getting confused here. Isnt it reported that MCAS only uses one AoA vane? If there is a disagreement, what does it matter if it relied on one? Add-on alert or not, didnt MCAS only use one?
