Here's a strategy off the top of my head:

1. plug the line into your voicetronix & the fax machine
2. configure asterisk to use it as the main dial-out line
3. configure asterisk to not pick up calls incoming on that line 4.
configure users to check that the fax machine wasn't in use before
dialing out, or to dial a special dial-out code to use the other line,
so they don't stuff your faxes.
