Because the carbocation formed at tertiary carbon is more stable than the primary carbocation, because of hyperconjugation and Inductive effect.

because of inductive effect, a reagent must be present, a stable carbocation has more possibility ... of carbon atoms in tertiary alcohols, make them more reactive than primary.
