Licences for Pidgin are free of charge.  (It would be possible for 
someone to charge for supporting Pidgin.)

There is no account needed to have a licence for Pidgin, as anyone 
receiving the software automatically gets a licence.

I suspect you are confusing Pidgin with the instant messaging service 
that you access with it.  That will be provided by a completely 
different organisation, and may well be something you have to pay for.

Pidgin is an instant messaging service.  A message that failed using one 
connection may be stale by the time that that times out.  I do not 
believe that Pidgin has any such alternative routing capability.
