I would like to know how to do this as well, but for different reasons:
mobile users. If I'm in the office my SIP phone registers with the local *
box, or at my house wiht my * box, and so on and so forth, so my extension
moves with me. If I'm not anywhere near a * box the SIP registration
eventually dies and since there's no SIP registration it calls my cell
phone... kind of like a universal extension type of thing.
I know I can dial all of them with one extension and whichever picks up
picks up but that seems a little ... hokey. I can't think of a better way
to do it short of being able to propagate registrations across * boxes.
