If he will turn off his client without changing his state to online, and 
login into the account with another client (possibly at another 
machine), he won't get that message.

Some people always have dnd state at work or at their mobile clients. In 
such case their clients would keep such messages indefinitely. Moreover, 
your solution would make client more complicated, f.e. it would need to 
store that message somewhere... some clients cannot do that. So there's 
need to store such messages on server.
