What do you suppose is the function of every receptionist at every hotel and large corporate office in the land? That person has a fancy phone and distributes incoming calls on a shared main number to the appropriate extensions. Functionally speaking that's a PBX even if it doesn't have those pre-1960s plugs and wires.

Even systems with auto-attendants ("press 1 for accounting, 2 for reservations, 3 for the dining room, ...") still have a person backstopping the whole thing (" ..., or press 0 or stay on the line to speak to an operator.").

That person is, by definition, a PBX operator.
