ISDN (basic access)uses pins 3&6 for Transmit and pins 4&5 for Receive.
If you jack is wired as 568B, then you have to connect pairs 1 and 3 (blue and green).
If you jack is wired as 568A, then you have to connect pairs 1 and 2 (blue and orange).
The wiring scheme for your Leviton jack is to be marked on it.
