It's in 3921bis section 4.3.2, case #3:

       Else, if the contact has no available resources,
       If appropriate in accordance with local security policies this
       presence notification MAY include the full XML of the last
       unavailable presence stanza that the server received from the
       contact (including the 'id' of the original stanza), but if not
       then the presence notification SHOULD simply indicate that the
       contact is unavailable without any of the details originally
       provided.  In any case the presence notification returned to the
       probing entity SHOULD include information about the time when the
       last unavailable presence stanza was generated
