How many faxes are you sending/receiving in a day? The cost to maintain two fax lines just so sending/receiving faxes is a little faster seems cost prohibitive unless the volume is huge.

Nowadays, I'd recommend people use a fax-to-email type service like eFax instead:
https://www.efax.com/

Calls to these services aren't going to have to wait for each other, as the services have plenty of lines to accept incoming faxes to your number, and you don't have to wait for the line to be free to send a fax.


Otherwise, when using two or more fax lines, you probably want to set up a fax server, which is an option on Windows Server:

You can explicitly set each modem to send or receive, so you'd install two modems to a machine, and set one to send, and one to receive.
