Alignment question - MBZ Dealer said it didn't matter

The MBZ Dealer said it didn't matter that the "Axle Vehicle level" measurement, on the print out of the "Chasis Alignment Test Sheet" was in the 'red zone', 'before' and 'after' the alignment on my 2003 C230 Sport.
He never could explain what the front/rear, right/left "Axle Vehicle level ready for driving" (measured in mm/degrees) really was.
They made an issue of me asking for the alignment specs in the first place. Since the alignment report did not have my Name, VIN, or License plate, I asked for another alignment. The next time the "Axle Vehicle level" was all in the 'green zone' and on spec - he still could not explain what it is, but at least the report had my Name and VIN on it.
My last two sets of tires wore out on the front outside edges - and I figured a MBZ spec'd 4-wheel alignment should help. I understand a bit of geometry and I understand the difference in Toe, Camber and Caster, but the 'Axle Vehicle level ready for driving' is a new one on me. Maybe it doesn't matter - I wuld like to learn what it is.
Any help to look up this term is appreciated!
