I like to think that the Daedalus-class began its existence during the Romulan Wars as a easy to mass-produce, no-frills Earth design that remained in service after the Federation was formed as a much needed "a dime a dozen" workhorse...

...whereas the NX-class was discontinued after only ten years because it was a more elaborate and harder to mass-produce design that perhaps couldn't be modified to accept the new Warp 7 engines being developed at the time.
