So the kittens weren't eating, you took them to the vets, the vet didn't find anything and said to watch and wait - you have watched and waited, and 24 hours later the kittens are still not eating, one has vomited again and diarrhoea is present. A great line at the end of consultations is, 'So if this doesn't improve, at what point do you want to see me again?' - we try to let you know, but it can sometimes be missed, so this is good to keep in mind. Meanwhile, it sounds as though you still need to ask how soon your kitten needs to be seen - this can be worked out in a phone call, known as 'Triage' and can be done by your emergency vet if you feel that it may be an emergency. Emergency vets will cover issues such as, how likely the kitten is to be dehydrated (and therefore need emergency fluids) or whether this will wait until tomorrow. I hope that that helps.
