But Mr Bercow stood by his decision to allow a vote on the amendment - which was ultimately approved by 308 votes to 297, majority 11 - amid personal criticism and calls for him to go from Tory MPs during more than 60 minutes of points of order.
Britain's government suffered another setback Wednesday as MPs voted to force it to announce within three sitting days what steps it will take next if its Brexit deal is rejected by parliament next week as appears likely.
Former cabinet minister and Brexiteer Theresa Villiers said the evening "hasn't changed my view" and she would still not support the agreement, negotiated between Mrs May and European Union leaders.
A senior Downing Street source said they were "surprised" Mr Bercow permitted the vote because of a belief the motion on Mrs May's Brexit deal was "unamendable".
The government was expecting to have 21 days to come up with a "plan B" for Brexit if, as widely expected, Mrs May's deal is voted down.
But her spokesman added: "If that were not to take place. we would respond quickly and provide certainty on the way forward".
"It's important to put in context that the majority of elected representatives are opposed to Brexit, so in terms of giving the Assembly and the DUP a veto on any of those things in the future that will not be acceptable to Sinn Fein and I dare say it'll not be acceptable to the other (pro-Remain) parties", she said.
"You have said again and again you're a servant of this House and we take you at your word, and I have heard you many times on points of order when people have challenged you say "I can not do X or Y because I am bound by a motion of the House".
The Speaker denied Francois's claim he was "overriding" a motion of the Commons by allowing the amendment, prompting the Tory backbencher to claim Bercow was engaging in "sophistry".
Answering a question from Yahoo Finance UK, she said: "We have been assured that whatever words of comfort, whatever words of clarification are given to assist the political process, that there will be no question of undermining or compromising the legal text, the legal protections, the legal protocol that contains the protections for Ireland".
"We will be making it clear in all of those meetings that neither the DUP nor the British government speak for the people of the north", said Ms McDonald. I'm sorry but there is a distinction between a motion and an amendment.
"I don't think the British public are served by fantasies about magical, alternative deals that are somehow going to spring out of a cupboard in Brussels", Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington said in an interview with BBC radio.
