I've never heard this explanation, but who knows??

I've heard of callback relating to RAS as a method of preventing
just anyone calling into a particlar RAS server.
Using callbacks, the server hangs up and immediately calls the
originator back to a valid, known telephone number.
Also allows the server to be billed for it instead of the caller.

At MS web site:
Callback Negotiation with the Callback Control Protocol
The Callback Control Protocol (CBCP) is documented in .
CBCP negotiates the use of callback where the remote access server,
after authenticating the remote access client, terminates the physical
connection, waits a specified amount of time, and then calls the remote
access client back at either a static or dynamically configured phone
number. Common CBCP options include the phone number being used by the
remote access server to call the remote access client back.
