That surprises me.  In Missouri, analog (a.k.a. B1) phone lines are 
considered "life saving devices" and have (had?) mandates to be 
available for service even when the power is out.

This is one of the reasons that TelCo equipment had such massive battery 

I expect that a true analog (B1) phone line should stay in service even 
without power.

I've also seen a number of VoIP offerings that include a battery backup 
both in the ATA and various equipment along the aggregation path for 
this very reason.
