The business project manager (if you have one) is not responsible for delivery of the project and therefore is not responsible for the project. It is the project manager i.e. the manager of the project who is responsible for the management and delivery of the project. It is not the business or executive sponsor. They may be disappointed or executively at risk if the project does not deliver. However, to confirm this completely and fully, they are not responsible for delivery, the Project manager is.
