This function is not defined.

This function overloads args() but it can never deduce the parameter
T, because T appears in a non-deduced context (to the left of the ::
scope operator)

Same here, this adds a third overload of args (it does not provide a
definition for the first overload above) and because they appear in
non-deduced contexts A and Args cannot be deduced.

This cannot call the third overload, because argument deduction cannot
succeed, so it calls the first overload of add() which you haven't
defined so you get a linker error.
