Sorry for a long delay.. (forgot to take the "Gone Fishing" sign down)

With stock code, there is no way to limit it to one per zone. As Robert
it is only limited to the MUD. However, you can do a few work arounds.
1. Remove the object then load it.
2. Create a different bell per receptionist (kinda stupid IMO).
3. Make a zone (and/or room) qualifier for loading. This topic was
discussed before and George suggested the qaulifier. Like percentages
another variable added to zone files to check to load it per
I was possibly thinking of using a different method, and never got past
searching a zone. (before I had to quit)
