Because the Top 250 calculation is different than the standard calculation. This is explained at the link at the bottom of the Top 250 page:
Learn more about how list ranking is determined.
Why doesn't a title with the average user vote of 9.4 appear in your top 250 Movies or TV list?
As indicated at the Top Rated Movies page, only votes from regular IMDb voters are considered when creating the top 250 out of the full voting database. This explains any difference between the vote averages reported in the top 250 lists and those on the individual title pages. This also explains why movies or shows you might think from their averages ought to appear on the list yet do not actually appear there.
To maintain the effectiveness of the top 250 lists, we deliberately do not disclose the criteria used for a person to be counted as a regular voter.
