Because asterisk can't tell if an analogue line is plugged in or not. To
get a dial-tone, it would have to activate the line (ie. "lift the
handset") and it's not going to do that. It's relying on the channel
instruction in the zapata.conf file to tell it what lines are really live,
so get them right and everything else will "just work".
