Second coat of paint?

So I just finished the first coat on the exterior of my house (T1-11 siding) using Behr's Premium Plus Ultra. I had first spot primed bare wood and rough spots with Behr Premium Plus Multi-Surface Primer and Sealer. I didn't realize that the Premium Plus Ultra was a primer as well. Oops. Oh, well. I'm keeping the house and want a good, long-lasting paint job, so I'm assuming I should do a second coat, . . . or? Is two coats standard? If so, I'll just use the Premium Plus (without the primer) for the second coat. I'm using a roller and chasing with a brush. Thanks for your replies.

Yes a second coat because there is NO primer in the paint

A specialty primer used before the paint is going to be at least as good as a paint-and-primer-in-one product. Over bare wood I would have chosen the specialty primer first anyway. A second coat is only going to help. Have you considered their new Marquee line of paint? If you're looking for the best quality and longest lasting, that is the way to go. Of course another coat of their standard paint will be fine too.

When dealing with T-111 if you have any of the sealer left I use it along the bottom and top edge of your boards this is where T-111 usually starts to rot because water can wick up into unsealed edges. And be very liberal with it.
