Because no resources are online, the server routing rules specify that
messages to the bare jid go to offline storage or get bounced, etc.
You could send messages to the full JID perfectly fine, and the server
should deliver them as you expect.  This same situation would occur if
you were to send negative priority presence.  Messages to the bare JID
will not be delivered unless there is a non-negative resource online.
