You can't.  Because this makes no sense: that frame was created to
handle the buffer it displayed, so when the client buffer goes away,
the frame has no business to live anymore.

What kind of workflow do you use that makes this a sensible thing to
do?  It sounds like you use emacsclient in some strange way, not the
way it was intended to be used.
