Depends on the level of description: underlying (abstract) /ed+t(i)/ = surface (phonetic) [etst(i)]; and, presumably, *etst(i) derives from earlier **ett(i).
There is no reconstructable perfect corresponding to *est(i). The meaning "has arisen" is typically expressed by the perfect forms of *bHeuh2- "grow; occur". The two roots have jointly produced suppletive paradigms in several branches.

Okay, cool, I was right then... *e:de (and I think I like *ett better). Now, *e:de is the perfect of *ett, then is *e:se the perfect of *est. If so *es- may have more accurately meant "to remain", no? :)
