9@ Route Pattern Matched Issues

Unfortunately I have to deal with a lot of 9@ route patterns in our deployment.  I understand weird things happen when 9@ is used, but even this one is boggling my mind.  So I was hoping someone could help me understand why it's doing what it's doing.

I have a CSS with a collection of partitions.   I'll call the 3 I'm interested in the following: One-PT, Two-PT, Three-PT.

One-PT has a route pattern of 9@ with the Local filter applied going to Gateway 1.

Two-PT has a route pattern of 9@ with the Local filter applied going to Gateway 2.

Three-PT has a route pattern of 9.XXXXXXXXXX with no filter applied (those are 10 Xs) going to Gateway 3.

My phone is assigned to the CSS with these 3 partitions.  When I dial 9 981 xxx xxxx DNA says that 9@ from One-PT is always matched.  If I remove One-PT from the CSS, then 9@ in Two-PT is matched.  Only if I remove those 2 partitions does Three-PT get matched.

Now, as I said above I understand 9@ can introduce weird routing issues, but I thought that the route pattern with 9 and 10 Xs would be more specific and it would be matched.  Obviously I was wrong, but I'm trying to understand why I was wrong. Is this because the 10 digit number dialed matches the NANP and the Local filter matches a NANP area code?  Thus it's the more exact match?

Thanks!

I believe the specificity of

I believe the specificity of 9@ is much closer to 9[2-9]XX[2-9]XXXXXX. This will always be more specific than 9XXXXXXXXXX.

Hi,

As per the following link

"Using the @ Wildcard Character in Route Patterns

Using the @ wildcard character in a route pattern provides a single route pattern to match all NANP numbers, and requires additional consideration.

The number 92578912 matches both of the following route patterns: 9.@ and 9.XXXXXXX. Even though both these route patterns seem to equally match the address, the 9.@ route pattern actually provides the closest match. The @ wildcard character encompasses many different route patterns, and one of those route patterns is [2-9][02-9]XXXXX. Because the number 2578912 more closely matches [2-9][02-9]XXXXX than it does XXXXXXX, the 9.@ route pattern provides the closest match for routing."

Thank you to both!  After I posted my question, I did some more digging and thinking and your answers were the conclusion I came to.  Glad to have confirmation from others.
