if you can debug the code and reproduce the exception every time then simply check if client is null.
also, u can add code which checks if the client is null.
i'd also use try/catch to detect what and where the error occur:
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {try{
            SmppClient client = new SmppClient();
            SmppConnectionProperties properties = client.Properties;
            properties.SystemID = "username";
            properties.Password = "password";
            properties.Port = 3333; 
            properties.Host = "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx";
            properties.SystemType = "";
            properties.DefaultServiceType = "xxx";
      
            client.AutoReconnectDelay = 3000;

            client.KeepAliveInterval = 15000;

            client.Start();

            //--send SMS
            TextMessage textMsg = new TextMessage();
            textMsg.Text = "Hello, this is my message!";
            textMsg.DestinationAddress = "99999999";
            textMsg.SourceAddress = "888888888";
          if(client != null){
            client.SendMessage(textMsg);
}else{
//log error to file or raise error
}
}catch(exception ex){
//log exception to file or raise error
}
        }
