Form 1099 R provides distribution code 2 which means exception applies. You need to report this amount on your tax return(Form 1040) Line 16a and 0 on Line 16b. Hence, none of the amount will be taxable since it is a rollover into a qualified plan.
Let me know if you have any question.

Generally the Form 1099R should have reported taxable amount as 0 in case of trustee to trustee rollover and reported the distribution code for direct rollover. Have you tried contacting them to find out if this was an error on their part?
