[asterisk-users] Substitute Macro() for Gosub in dialplan

Since Macro is deprecated I am trying to eliminate it from my diaplan. I
believe I have successfully done so in the example below.

; dial an internal extension
exten => 101,1  Macro(ext,100,Dahdi/15)


exten => 101,1,Dial(Dahdi/15,30)

So far it seems to work. However I also in my dialplan have call routing
examples that use macro that I am not able to figure out.

exten => s/5553331111,1,Macro(busy);


exten => s/5553331111,1,Gosub(subBusy,start,1());

exten => s,1,Answer
exten => s,2,Wait(1)
exten => s,3,Playtones(480+620/500,0/500)
exten => s,4,Wait(12)
exten => s,5,Hangup

However, after reloading the diaplan and calling from the specified number
I get the error:

Gosub attempted to reach non-existent destination 'subBusy
