atime not updated after 24 hours

I have two file systems of the same type (ext3) and mounted with
the same options (rw, relatime, data=ordered).

On one of them, reading a file whose atime is older than 24
hours updates the atime.

On another, it doesn't, even if the atime is several months old.

Those file systems are local, which exonerates NFS, and on the
same host, which means it's not just different software

Does that ring a bell ?
