I just purchased an Apple external modem for faxing, and I got the same thing that you're reporting. I Googled around for an answer, but didn't see anything useful. It may be that the message is somewhat misleading.

What I've found is that I receive this message consistently if I attempt to fax via my VoIP line, but that my PTSN line (regular phone system line) works just fine for sending the identical fax to the identical location.

So the question is, are you using a suitable phone line for a fax connection (such as a regular hard-wired land line) or are you using something like a Gizmo5 VoIP line?

Hope this helps. . .
