I believe this was already discussed
before. If the on fail target fails,
it would have a "on fail" that is as
simple as possible, such as a one liner
that echos "fatal error"...

I believe the original example posed had a cascading
a series of on fail targets, each with less
work (less likely to fail) and each expressed
increasing severity of the nature of the failure(s).
