I know that the 1 denotes the Zap channel number.  That's why I would 
not expect it to dial a 1.  But it apparently does dial a one.  Hence my 
original question.

If it did not dial a 1, it would not work because a 1 is required for 
the called number, as coded, to work properly with the local phone service.

Furthermore, I discovered this because I originally coded it this way:

exten => _NXXXXXX,1,Dial(Zap/1/${EXTEN}|55)

...which simply timed out on the line and failed.  Experimentally, I 
determined that the telco was expecting 3 more digits, in spite of the 
fact that 7 digit dialing is normal for the line.
