I am not sure about your hardware setup for ISDN. But if you set up the
software side (ippp; ppp) to be auto dialing, you just need to be sure
the default route is set again on the outgoing ISDN device by adding

route add default ippp0

in /etc/ppp/ip-down.local (that file does not exist by default, but will
be called if you create it as a bash script with execute permissions).
