This sounds exactly like the sort of situation for which local channels were 
invented .....

Dial(${DIALGROUP1}&LOCAL/foo at bar) with a longer timeout than 10 seconds.  Then 
in your local channel, wait 10" and Dial(${DIALGROUP2}).  The first Dial() will 
be satisfied when someone answers either a phone in dial group 1, or a phone in 
dial group 2 set ringing by the Dial() in the local channel.
