? Repeated Patterns ?

Dear Mathematica users,

The following Mathematica result quite confuses me. I can understand the output of
the first input command, but not the second output. Why not {0,1) but
{0,0,0,1}?
Many thanks if anyone could help me.

----- Mathematica script (Repeated patterns) --------

In[1]:=
{1,0,0,0} /. {x___Integer, y_Integer..} -> {x, y}

Out[1]=
{1,0}

In[2]:=
{0,0,0,1} /. {x_Integer.., y___Integer} -> {x, y}

Out[2]=
{0,0,0,1}
