There are several reasons why your attempts to set CNAM might fail:

(1) your upstream PRI provider does not allow you to set it (although 
normally in this case you will find that you cannot set the CID either);

(2) someone between you and the called party will set the CNAM using a 
directory lookup;

(3) your upstream PRI provider is expecting the CNAM in a facility frame 
and not the default  used by Asterisk (fix this by setting 
"facilityenable=yes" in zapata.conf)
