Why two Integrate results of same eq. are different?

Dear all,

I got very extraordinary results today from below two same integrals
except one is symbolic one and the other is numeric one:
A. In[1]= N[Integrate[ Log[2, 1 + 10*x]*Exp[-x]*x, {x, 0, Infinity}]]
    Out[1]= -3.77002
B. In[2]= NIntegrate[ Log[2, 1 + 10*x]*Exp[-x]*x, {x, 0, Infinity}]
    Out[2]= 4.05856

Why did I got the different results of these, surprisingly?

Thank you in advance!
