The page and bookmark http://twistedmatrix.com/documents/current/core/howto/defer.html#auto4 explains it pretty well.  When there's an error your errback function is called and a failure object is passed to it.  You can handle it, drop it or pass it on as you please or seem appropriate.  Hope  that helps.
