Is a Knight & King versus Knight & King an automatic draw in chess?  



I was playing chess online and the game went down to me and opponent having a Knight & King each however, the game never automatically did a draw. Why not? I ultimately lost on time as my opponent just kept moving his Knight and I was short on time.

This position is not an automatic draw as you are able to checkmate with a knight and king on the board though it's quite difficult to do and would require your opponent to place their king at a corner of the board and have their knight directly next to it. I have included an image of this position.
