SSL Certificate - Internal CA vs "well known CA"

Just wanted to understand why using a "well known 'trusted' CA" (e.g. verisign) is more secure than using an Internal
CA to manage Certificates
e.g. if a company wants to publish a non-financial site (as opposed to, say, Internet Banking) would not an Internal CA
be as Secure as an external one?
What is the real (security) benefit of using (expensive) external (e.g. Verisign) Certs?
Thanks you for your comments
