When you connect to a remote asterisk with the -r option, there are a couple
commands automatically sent every time.  These automatic commands tell
the remote asterisk what verbose and debug level you passed on the
command line.

core set verbose at least X silent
core set debug atleast X

That is why the debug level does not go down.  Another thing is that the
debug level
is global to the system.  Thus if you set the level in one connection it
affects all
connections including future ones.  The verbose level is per connection.
