>From the bash manpage:

   Redirecting Standard Output and Standard Error
       Bash allows both the standard output (file  descriptor  1)
       and  the  standard  error output (file descriptor 2) to be
       redirected to the file whose name is the expansion of word
       with this construct.
       There  are two formats for redirecting standard output and
       standard error:
       Of the two forms, the first is preferred.  This is  seman­
       tically equivalent to
              >word 2>&1

As for LFS ignoring it,

nope, it works perfectly, as expected. This is standard bash syntax.
