<fileset> is the set of files that actually exist limited by the
patterns you provide.  It won't fail if the file doesn't exist, it is
its contract to accept that some things you specify may or may not be

I'm afraid that if you want the task to fail you first have to check the
file is actually there (doing a list and searching through the output)
or check it has been downloaded using <available> after the ftp task.
I'd go for available.
