Um, no, it's the other way around - the phones will work quite happily without the PC as long as the switchboard is up, but the PC is just a paperweight if the phones go down (especially if someone thought it was a good idea to use decent-spec PCs as dumb terminals running Shitrix with Windows on the servers. I thought we did away with mainframes years ago but apparently not...)
