Two ways to accomplish the objective.

1. ask the telco about four lines in a trunk group (or sometimes 
referred to as a rotary hunt group).

2. Subscribe to call forwarding on each line, and program each line for 
"call forward on busy" to the next line of the four. It will accomplish 
the same thing as the trunk group approach above.
