ppp and the redial timer

I'm trying to set up a dial-on-demand profile for my work router, which
will be both resposive, and limit costs under busy/fault conditions.
As it's for peak time use, the idle timer is set to 60s (5p). I
initially set redial to "60+60-1.1 0" and gave it two phone numbers.
With the phone disconnected, I expected to get two dial attempts, 60s
pause, two dial attempts, 120s pause,...
But I got one dial attempt followed by a 60s pause. I've also tried
"60.1" to redial and colon and pipe separated phone numbers, but still
only one dial attempt per 60s. Is the [.next] parameter to redial
supposed to work this way or am I missing something?
BTW, I'm using ppp version 2.24 from the 3.4-RELEASE CD.
part of /etc/ppp.conf:
set timeout 30 60
# set redial 60+60-1.1 0
set redial 60.1
# set phone "08452120666|08452120666"
set phone "08452120666:08452120666"
