Well, it's behaving as documented (C-h f):

        Create the appointments list from todays diary buffer.

And the code is very explicit:

        ;; Clear the appointments list, then fill it in from the diary.
        (setq appt-time-msg-list nil)

The problem is even if you make sure appt-make-list is called before
appt-add, to initialize appt-time-msg-list, it could get called again
(like at midnight) and overwrite the appointment list.
