AFAIR, the prompt follows to another GUI frame because that frame gets
the focus-in event. If I'm right, then it should also work with
emacsclient frames on terminals that support focus-in events. Failing
that, how to tell Emacs to switch to another frame, and would the way
to do that easier than just typing C-g and switching to the client
frame "by hand"?
