It didn't. What was and is binding is the parliament's vote ordering the government to invoke 50.

In addition, the parliament will have the final say on the government's proposition (whatever that may effectively mean as the choice appears to be between accepting the deal that the government struck and no deal at all. There's no option amounting to "we don't like the result so let's forget about it altogether").
Parliament rarely just accepts a bill and rarely jumps straight into the yes or no part of the vote.

There are always debates, and from debates can come re-drafts.

Whether or not that wil amuse Brussels is another question of course.
