Everything I've read states that the tentacles get "nibbled on" not that its their food source. I would find it hard to believe that the fish couldn't survive without man of war jellyfish tentacles in their diet.
I look at it in a similar fashion as a clownfish with a nem. They like being there but don't need it to survive. It would be dumb if a fish species wasn't capable of surviving without its host jellyfish as the species would go extinct.
