What does it mean when the house is off the market? Will it come back again?

When a house goes from for sale to off the market, does that typically mean it will return when the market is better, or does that usually mean it has sold and the person who listed it just took the listing down instead of saying it sold?

For a house to be off market, it almost always means the listing agreement was either canceled or expired. 

Sometimes these homes spend as little as a couple hours or a couple days off the market, before returning again.  Sometimes, "life happens," and for an unlimited number of reasons, that seller no longer has any interest in selling at all.

To summarize:  the range for an off-market listing to return to market is between a couple hours and never.

Zillow shows "off market" when a home is no longer being actively advertised (or has never been advertised)   If a home has been sold, the "sold" status appears when Zillow receives data from public records after it is recorded. (It isn't something the listing party can add.)  This can mean that there is a gap of several days to several months from the time the home goes off the market until the "sold" status appears.   Yes, this can be disconcerting.       If you are interested in more specifics, you can call up the person shown as listing agent before it went "off market".

Of course, there are always ones where the seller decides to take it off the market without selling.
