No it isn't in the RFC. Not only does the RFC say that it MAY do
that, but it also gives a bunch of other delivery rules. So, there is
no way on relying on that whatsoever. Also, AFAIK, no server
implements delivery to all.

I'm sure that is what the client intended to do then. Personally, i
would never make my client go to '0' automatically, because in the
time where i put myself away on one client and arrive to the other
client (which was also set to away), it would mean that messages
could have been delivered to *any* of both clients.
