A build listener will receive the build status.   Look at the code here:

It does this very thing: e-mails failure e-mails from a build (and success

Using a task to e-mail build results is not logistically possible, and a
listener or logger is the right place to do that.   The thing I don't like
about the mail logger in the FAQ is that it assumes you are logging to a
file, and that the filename is specified in the properties file.   This
leaves too much room for mistake or mismatch in my opinion.  I'm working on
a new logger that I will submit for Ant 1.5 that will take care of this
