Things like this are why I advocate for BA's with technical skills. Explaining why a system did what it did shouldn't require a developer.

In the absence of someone else who could explain, I feel like you did the right thing. The absolute worst thing any vendor (or department if internal) could tell a user is that it's someone else's fault/issue without an adequate explanation. Pointing fingers without backing it up is one of the quickest ways to loose a client's trust.
