To my knowlege, a normally working modem can't damage a PBX.  Some modems
also have clamping diodes on the line connection to prevent transients
from damaging both the modem and the phone equipment.

However, it might disrupt communications on other lines if the transmit
level was high enough, and the PBX also had an adjacent line crosstalk

Good luck!
