1) I would ask the developer to identify precisely what bugs I missed.
2) I would the review the list of bugs in the build notes and compare this with the suite of test cases that I had run during the test cycle. 
3) If this is not the release build, then I would add test cases for the missed bugs in the suite of test cases for the next test iteration
4) If this is the release candidate, then I would immediately raise this issue with management and let them decide how to proceed based on the bugs' priority and severity levels.

Every Build Note comes with the List of defects are going to deployed, Testing Team should test all the defects and change/new functionality listed on that build manifesto. Ideally a Test Manger should do a impact and effort analysis before approving the build. Test Manger/Sr
Test Analyst should analyze the functional and business changes in the
application/product to choose the test cases to cover all the defects,
change/new requests on that build. This will assure the complete test. If a
developer says "you Missed Bugs" in this build, Then Tester need to verify the
below before answering

1. Check the bugs or defects developer mentioned are there in the build
manifesto


2. Check the bugs or defects developer mentioned are covered in the test
cases planned for this build Test Analyst can say its development issue if point
one is False or it’s a Test team issue if point 2 is False.


These situations raise due to miscommunication between Dev, Test and
deployment Teams.

First thing as a Senior Test Analyst, Prepare the detailed analysis report
consulting both Test team (self) and dev team stating the amount of Effort
required to fix each defect in terms of Business/Functional and System changes
required to fix these defects. If both the team have bandwidth to complete
Development and Testing on the time frame specified by the client the go head
and complete it If you don’t have bandwidth to complete all the defects then try
to complete all 5 high severity defects first and if time permits some of low
severity and make the client understand the difficulties and explain that what
are all defects can be pushed in this build on time and what defects can be
pushed in next build and go ahead with the work as planned. In short you should
do detailed analysis of the defects and consult the effort required for Dev team
and have a internal plan first and let the client know your outcome.

Hi

  This type situation will definitely occured in any of the company and every one must face this as testing is the final formality, so altimately pressure is on testers only.


But, while closing the testing , make a note of what was the test coverage in the testing, this is a best solution even who ever shouted on us, because that is the only proof for us, so dont hesitate to add the test coverage.


Thanks

Testers need to finalize and communicate the scope of testing as well as depth of testing  clearly before testing the build under pressure. This should be communicated both to developers as well as manager.

After doing this if we testers missed any bug, we need to see whether it is due to
-the area / depth is not under scope
-due to mistake of our test strategy

If formal is the case, we can defend us. If later is the case, we need to accept developer's accusal.
