I got this from someone else, but it works for me:
====================================================
{5} /etc/ppp> less ppp0.start
#!/bin/sh
#
# PPPD Auto-Dialer script
#
# Note:

#  You *MUST* use -detach mode or else the pppd process will fork
#  into the background and you will get hundreds of pppd processes
trying
#  to connect to the remote site.  The current behavior causes the line
to
#  re-dial when pppd fails, so it acts like a auto-dialer.
#
DEVICE=cuaa1

while `true`; do
    /usr/sbin/pppd -detach \
        connect 'chat -v -f /etc/ppp/isp.chat' $DEVICE 115200
    # If we fail, wait a little while for the line to settle down
    sleep 5
done
==================================================

{6} /etc/ppp> less isp.chat
ABORT "NO CARRIER" ABORT BUSY "" A\pA\pA\pT OK ATZ0 OK
ATM1&C1&D2S95=3&W0 OK ATDT19995551234 CONNECT "" ogin: alogin ssword:
apassword
{7} /etc/ppp> 
====================================================

isp.chat is actually all one line.
your modem may vary
