Transfer Answer Event – verb

When processing a <Transfer> verb, this event is sent when a called party (B-leg) answers. The event is sent to the endpoint specified in the transferAnswerUrl attribute of the <PhoneNumber> tag that answered. BXML returned by this callback will be executed for the called party only. After all BXML has been executed, the called party will be bridged to the original call.
