In the XMPP world, as far as I understand, none.

But in my use case, for offline contacts the client would
return an error, while for contacts for which presence hasn't
been received, it would wait until it is received.

My intention is to allow users to attempt a call (to someone
on their roster) before the client is connected, by automagically
connecting, getting presence, caps, and eventually calling if
