How about:

FSMO transfer of 'infrastructure' role suceeded.
    (FSMO seize was not required.)


FSMO transfer of 'infrastructure' role FAILED.
    (You must use --force to seize it.)

And for pedantic thoroughness:

FSMO seizure of 'infrastructure' role succeeded.
FSMO seizure of 'infrastructure' role FAILED.

Those four messages would clearly communicate what transpired; the latter two 
imply that a normal transfer failed.
