It depends upon what kind of DAHDI channel.  If it is an analog FXS/FXO
port then
you have to answer for the busy tone to be heard by the caller because as
far as the
telco is concerned it delivered a call to a non-busy line.  If it is an ISDN
channel then it depends upon what you have the priindication option set
to.  With
priindication=outofband then a busy cause code is sent to the network and
the call
is hung up.  With priindication=inband then a busy tone is sent after a
PROGRESS message.
