I have this in my config:

exten => _800XXXXXXX,1,Verbose(0,${CHANNEL(peername)} Calling ${EXTEN})
same => n,Dial(SIP/tollfree/1${EXTEN})
exten => _1800XXXXXXX,1,Verbose(0,${CHANNEL(peername)} Calling ${EXTEN})
same => n,Dial(SIP/tollfree/${EXTEN})
exten => _NXXNXXXXXX,1,Verbose(0,${CHANNEL(peername)} Calling ${EXTEN})
same => n,Dial(SIP/trunk/1${EXTEN})
exten => _1NXXNXXXXXX,1,Verbose(0,${CHANNEL(peername)} Calling ${EXTEN})
same => n,Dial(SIP/trunk/${EXTEN})

I came across http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7235291/asterisk-priorities-that-have-a-possibility-of-matching which seems to imply that the above won’t work and that all the calls would go to the trunk. However, this is working as expected for me. Did the behaviour change in the last four years or could I run into problems with this setup? Perhaps I am misunderstanding the poster’s issue.
