It exists in the CVS version. That's what --help outputs:

Usage: /usr/local/src/emacs-21.3.5_cvs/emacs_build/lib-src/emacsclient 
Tell the Emacs server to visit the specified files.
Every FILE can be either just a FILENAME or [+LINE[:COLUMN]] FILENAME.

The following OPTIONS are accepted:
-V, --version           Just print a version info and return
-H, --help              Print this usage information message
-n, --no-wait           Don't wait for the server to return
-e, --eval              Evaluate the FILE arguments as ELisp expressions
-d, --display=DISPLAY   Visit the file in the given display
-s, --socket-name=FILENAME
                        Set the filename of the UNIX socket for communication
-a, --alternate-editor=EDITOR
                        Editor to fallback to if the server is not running
