How do you configure a "catch-all" dial-peer with a Cisco AS5400?

How do you configure a "catch-all" dial-peer with a Cisco AS5400?  For example, I have 4085550123 destination-pattern, but I also want all calls that do not go to that dial-peer to have a default destination.  

I tried configuring two dial-peers.  One with:
destination-pattern 4085550123  
and another with :
destination-pattern .

This resulted in all calls going to the "destination pattern ." dial-peer and nothing ever going to the 4085550123 dial-peer.

Give the catch all dial peer a 'preference 1' and it should be matched only
if a match against your exact pattern fails.  You could choose to give each
dial-peer a preference (making the catch all the highest number so its
preferred last) but in this specific case the exact match dial-peer would
default to zero, so just giving the catch all a preference of 1 should give
you the desired results.

"Note: When you set the preference order, the lower the preference number,
the higher the priority. The highest priority is given to the dial peer with
preference order 0 and it is the default value. You can have a preference
value between 0 to 10."
