English term or phrase: rollover lines
These are taken from instructions to key in data into a computer: Type the area code and the telephone number. After you enter a number, click button X to add the number to the list. Repeat for each additional telephone number, including all alternate or rollover lines.

Explanation:
Hunting (Rollover Lines)

Hunting (Rollover Lines) is placed on individual telephone lines that make up a group, also known as a hunt group. Hunt groups are a series of lines organized in such a way that if the first line is busy, the next line is hunted and so on until a free line is found. There are two types of hunting, serial and circular.

Serial: Serial hunting searches for available lines from the top of the group down. Each incoming call always starts at the top of this group and is rolled to an available line in that hunt group. If the call reaches the last line in the hunt group sequence, it does NOT roll to the first line in the hunt group.

*Note: The last line in a serial hunt group does not need hunting because the last line does NOT roll to the first line in the hunt group.

Circular: In Circular hunting, the switch has the ability to remember the last line it connected, and starting there, it hunts down to the next available line. Once the last line in the hunt group is reached, it rolls to the top or the first line in the hunt group. It does NOT continue to roll after completion of loop. Essentially, the available lines are searched for in a circle.

*Note: All lines in the hunt group MUST have hunting on them because Circular hunting rolls to the top or first line again.
