There are many cases where local calling areas cross LATA boundaries,
so this is generally, in itself, irrelevant. One of the noted
interstate metropolitan exchanges is Kansas City, Mo.-Kan., which is
in two LATAs but one local calling area.

Many, many smaller such cases exist.

County lines are generally irrelevant, too. Parts of Payne County,
Oklahoma, are in three different NPAs. The county seat is Stillwater,
area code 405, but there are parts of the county in 580 and 918 (the
part in 918 is in a different LATA, but NPAs 580 and 405 area in the
same LATA).
