Honda Pilot AWD

I thought I had a bad rim so I put the Pilot up on 4 jackstands. I put it in gear and the front wheels spun (of course). My question is, is why didn't the back spin. Seems like a condition where the front wheels have no traction so the back should kick in. Ideas on why the back didn't spin?

I am guessing that the system thought that both front wheels in fact did have traction as they were both turning at the same speed. I believe AWD is activated based on different wheel speeds occurring at the same time.
