YANME – You are not my electrician – Help me diagnose a problem with my new dimmer switches.

The electrician installed two dimmer switches for lights in the same room - two recessed lights on one switch, one chandelier on the other. The switches are next to each other on the wall (Lutron 1-way 600W switches, if relevant) and are the only switches controlling those lights.
The problem: The chandelier can only be dimmed if the recessed lights are on. The recessed lights can be dimmed regardless of whether the chandelier is on. What went wrong? How is it fixed?
