    You must find out the "prefix code" for sending a FAX (I believe), that way the phone line won't try to encode an already digital signal. I might be wrong, but this is what's required when you have digital phone service (in general). It's not a perfect solution, though, since a FAX signal is not the same as a modems, there can still be reliablity problems!
