Hmm.  I've looked a bit further.  According to the documentation, 
${DIALEDPEERNUMBER} is set by a Dial() command.  If you are using a call file 
to generate the call, then there will not be an explicit Dial() command and 
the variable will not get assigned.

Could you set a variable in the call file instead?  Use a line like
Set: varname=value
in the call file.  Then, later in the dialplan, you can retrieve ${varname} .  
If the call was -not- made by a call file, then that variable won't be set; in 
which case, you can pick up on ${DIALEDPEERNUMBER} instead.
