What type of PBX? SonicWalls are bad at handling VoIP functions. Try changing the UDP timeout from 120 to 1200.

I would suggestion disabling consistent NAT especially after doing the following:

Talk to Sonicwall and request HF152075. Their engineering group will have to create the firmware for you, which may take a few weeks. However, it will let you do the Disabled Source Port Remap direction in step 4 of this guide:

I had issues with drops and whatnot for a SIP trunk until I applied this.

You dont' say what the phone system is. But in our experience, most modern phone systems do not require the router or firewall to "fix up" the NAT mappings for SIP and turning on Sip Transforms can cause problems. I would suggest checking what your phone system says in the manual about NAT Traversal, but I would be surprised if it doesn't say do NOT use a SIP ALG.
