A bit more testing shows if I run the batch file as a standalone package or a preliminary package it correctly fails.
The documentation suggests I can use preliminary packages with push, policy and policy assisted push deployments. I am however only able to select a preliminary package using a push deployment. Please could someone clarify if I should be able to use a preliminary package with a policy assisted push deployment?
Apologies for the belated response, I was on holidays when this originally was posted and only stumbled over it now.
You CAN use "Preliminary Packages" and "Final Packages" quite happily with any of the methods - Push / Policy / Policy supported push.
The thing you most likely stumble over (which gets me also pretty frequently until I remember it) is that you can ONLY use *PUBLIC* packages as preliminary/final packages.
You can use personal (i.e. "My Distribution packages" ) as the main package, but in order to be preliminary or final, you need to have that be a PUBLIC package:).
