Hunt Pilot Alerting Name displayed on Caller ID

We recently upgraded from UC 7.1.5 to 9.1 and have found that the Hunt Pilot Alerting Name or DN of the Hunt Pilot is displayed on the phones instead of the outside caller ID. This is VERY annoying to our users. Does anyone know of a workaround to display the real outside caller ID? An example call flow if below...
