It seems to me that it's quite logical for you not to have the error page 
defined in a page that use your template.
Indeed, from what I've understood of the jsp template mechanism (see about 
it the HOWTO template, it's very interesting), the only parts of the 
template which are included in a jsp are the ones defined as <cms:template 
So, what I suggest you is to modify your template in order to put the <%@ 
page error > tag in the <cms:template element="head">.
This way, when defining a jsp that uses the template, the cms:template will 
result in the inclusion of the error page.
I strongly suggest you to cast a look at the template HOWTO page 3, which 
clearly explains how to use templates in jsps.
