I think it’s preferable it behaves just like regular ‘emacs’ does, opening a 
*scratch* buffer as a fallback.

I think you're misunderstanding the purpose of emacsclient:

$ emacsclient --help
Usage: emacsclient [OPTIONS] FILE...
Tell the Emacs server to visit the specified files.

See https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/emacs/Emacs-Server.html#Emacs-Server for typical use cases.
