Before posting the question, I had a look at the glob options as well as the NOMATCH option, but the description of NOMATCH option was confusing.
This is the information from the zshoptions man page:
If a pattern for filename generation has no matches, print an error, instead
of leaving it unchanged in the argument list. This also applies to file
expansion of an initial ~ or =.
Thanks for this info Andrey !!!
