It is because the computer renderfarm is trying to use has been logged on by students. The renderfarm uses any idle machine in Monty, but if a student touches the machine and intend to use it, it will break from the farm and cause the render to fail.

Sometimes during the busy school hours, this could happen multiple time, in this case, the farm will drop this frame completely. You would need to resubmit a job for these dropped frames
