Counterspell counters on failed check

Fighting the wizard in the bone tower, I used the Wand of Lightning Bolt, expending 4 charges. The wizard had to make a check for his counterspell and failed (rolled a 6, I think). It still prevented the wand from firing.

Perhaps because Counterspell automatically works against all spells of 3rd level and below? 

It sounds like it wasn't correctly adjusting for the upcast level of the spell (DC 16)

I can confirm that the same issue happened to me
