Thanks to all!
In a regenerative receiver I made, I put a snubber across entirely secondary winding of 1K and .15uF on a 170 + 170V to the plates of a 6X4. Placing across all secondary you are snubbering all leakage inductance. As DF96 tells, there are magnetically coupled, but not only inductive, also capacitivelly, and the linkage is not 100%, so there exists a leakgae between secondaries itself.
