[NTG-pdftex] \pdfprimitive

Hello,

\def\show{Hello World}
\pdfprimitive\show\relax

I would expect that the primitive \show (not the macro) is
executed and shows \relax. Instead I get an error (pdfTeX 1.40.3):

  ! Undefined control sequence.
  l.2 \pdfprimitive\show

Did I misunderstood \pdfprimitive?

Yours sincerely
