It is a side-effect of automatically recognizing all file formats. We
give up only after trying each and every possible reader. If nothing
works, we don't have a mechanism to score what the file is most likely
and then produce the format-specific error. Solving that problem is
harder than it may seem at first sight.
You can get the syntax error via

iotbx.phil your.def
