Stopper-less INT Overcalls and alerts/non-alerts

You open 1 of a minor, LHO overcalls 1NT, there's more bidding, whatever. There were no alerts during the auction, nor anything mentioned till after the hand was finished.

After the hand has been played and scored you find out that your opponents 1NT overcall shows 15-17 balanced, but only guarantees a stopper in your opened suit if your suit were 1 of a Major.

The 1NT overcalling partnership is of several years, playing 1+ session per week, not that I really think this fact enters into the issue.

No alert is necessary. Your side should have enquired about the exact nature of the 1NT overcall, if curious.
An alert should have been given.
