This is the desired behavior. Visudo locks the sudoers file against multiple 
simultaneous edits, provides basic sanity checks, and checks for parse 
But it relies on that you have the proper rights to do this. It's the job of 
sudo to provide these rights. So you have to use both programs to 
edit /etc/sudoers.
