My custom dynamic layer (moving vehicles) is at position 0, specified by this code:

mapControl.Map.MoveLayer(customDynamicLayer, 0); //smaller numbers draw later

But the annotations of the layer at position 1 (my map) still draw over my dynamic layer. Is this normal? Is there a workaround? I'm guessing there isn't a workaround because the non-dynamic layers get tiled, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

The drawing order within a layer is fixed, annotations always draw above geography.

There is a good description of drawing order and drawing phases in the ESRI documentation.
