The error message is correct.  This is not an option for the BSD mount command.
 You are attempting to use a Linux idiosyncrasy.

The "nofail" option was invented in December 2007 for the Linux mount command
by Matthias Koenig, Kay Sievers, and Karel Zak.

The FreeBSD mount command has a "failok" option, dating from base r222832 in
June 2011.  This is documented in the fstab(5) manual page.  It isn't
documented in mount(8), however; even though that is the command that actually
implements it.
