The main difference with event 4634 (An account was logged off) is that the 4647 event is generated when a logoff procedure was initiated by specific account using the logoff function, whereas 4634 event shows that a session was terminated and no longer exists.
4647 is more typical for Interactive and RemoteInteractive logon types when user was logged off using standard methods. You will typically see both 4647 and 4634 events when logoff procedure was initiated by user.

Logoff events may not be generated for certain network logons or after an unexpected shutdown.
