Maybe this:

    If there is no command name, any redirections shall be performed in
    a subshell environment; it is unspecified whether this subshell
    environment is the same one as that used for a command substitution
    within the command. (To affect the current execution environment,
    see the exec special built-in.) If any of the redirections performed
    in the current shell execution environment fail, the command shall
    immediately fail with an exit status greater than zero, and the
    shell shall write an error message indicating the failure. See
    Consequences of Shell Errors for the consequences of these failures
    on interactive and non-interactive shells.
