When you say "call multiple destinations" what exactly do you mean? If the
Broadvox is unable to connect either call then the dialplan moves on to the
Quest dial attempts. If that isn't what you need then can you clarify? Under
what condition(s) would the dialplan need to attempt to call via Quest?

Yep, makes sense. Could you maybe write it out in pseudo code? Something
like this:
#1 Call phone numbers ABC and XYZ simultaneously via Broadvox
#2 If BOTH ABC AND XYZ fail, then call ABC and XYZ via Quest

My mistake. :)

I'm 100% certain that this is possible with FreeSWITCH. You might just need
a different approach, depending upon the circumstances with your carriers.
Try the above suggestions first and let's see what happens. We'll take it
from there.
