private network for backup

Hello I have UNIX & WINTEL servers. I have a unmanaged giga switch and each of the servers have minimum of 2 NIC cards. One is for the live network and the other is for my backup network. The NIC connected to the giga switch have the IP address of 192.168.23.1 and so forth.
When I ping from one NT machine to another machine, sometimes it goes thru the giga switch (pings the 192.168.23.X address) and at times it pings the live IP.

How can I make sure that servers talk to each other thru the 192.168.23.X address and not the live IP address. Can anyone advise., Thank you
