There is a https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-1278 issue raised for treating arbitrary test failures as 'passed', making the Bamboo completing the builds. Not exactly what you need, but it still might be valuable to add yourself as a watcher to that issue.
If you remove the JUnit parsing task (or whatever test results parsing task you use) then Bamboo will only consider the exit code when deciding whether a plan passes/fails. If you need the test parsing task then you will want to look at modifying your test runner to ignore certain test failures.
If I understand correctly (I don't have any experience with Ant), all checking the "This build will produce test results" option is fail the test if no tests are found. But it is still up to that final, JUnit parsing task to actually looking for test failures. If it were me, I would modify the test runner (again, no Ant experience so I don't know how this is done) to take a list of tests to run, but always report that they were successful.
