OK, that's good.

Do your directors have any firewall packages installed on them? If you're not seeing VRRP packets on the external LAN then it could be that your firewall is silently dropping them via the OUTPUT chain.

Also, you could conceivably - and probably should, in fact - keep all your announcements on your internal LAN (I posted something about this not too long ago). If you don't control the external LAN, only use it for ingress/egress traffic, and do inter-server comms on your internal LAN.
