Journaling File Systems

When a file-hosted VeraCrypt container is stored in a journaling file system (like NTFS or Ext3), a copy of the VeraCrypt container (or of its fragment) may remain in the free space on the host volume.

If you need plausible deniability (see section Plausible deniability), you must not store file-hosted VeraCrypt containers in journaling file systems.

I am wanting to understand this part of the documentation, because then it would not be valid to have a file in NTFS? Where it shows "If you need plausible deniability (see section Plausible deniability), you must not store file-hosted VeraCrypt container" the user does not rush risks?
