You can't, by design, in standard XMPP.

The roster is not only a contact list, but also an access control list of
which other jids are allowed to see your presence; so to see people's
presence you'd need to add them to your roster. You do this by subscribing
to their presence via a <presence type='subscribe'/> stanza.
