[cisco-bba] 'sessions' versus 'PPPoA/E sessions' counts

When I looked at my "sh subscriber statistics" I noticed that 
- my "sessions currently up" does not add up to the number of PPPoA and
PPPoE sessions: how can that be?
- I have a very high "Number of sessions failed to come up"
- my call rate is 3341/minute, which is 56/second

I know I have lots of provisioned VP/VCs that don't have an active DSLAM
port, but I'm not sure if that contributes to an explanation.

If there's a debug I need to turn on to "see", please suggest the
appropriate one.  It seems that the box is overly busy.
