Splitting it into two parts then:

1) Make direct voice calls: Yes
The B159 user will be able to make direct voice calls using any short codes configured in the system for that function.

2) Auto Answer direct voice calls: No
As far as I'm aware the B159 cannot auto-answer calls. It will treat such calls as normal calls and ring instead.

As an analog phone it can't receive indication from the telephone system that any particular call is one it should auto-answer (it sees all incoming calls are being the same regardless of whether a direct dial feature has been used or not). That also means it isn't included in page calls from the system. Nor, from a quick scan of the B159 user guide, does it have any setting of its own to enable auto-answering of all calls.
