Change to second dial-peer

I'm looking to have a call go to a second dial-peer after a set delay.

For example, I have dial-peer A and dial-peer B with the same destination-pattern.  I will put a higher preference on dial-peer A.  Call comes in and rings dial-peer A for 15 seconds.  No answer so call is redirected to dial-peer B.

Thanks in advance for any help

So unfortunately, your requirement can't be fulfilled using the preference command.
