I think it means any host can connect and asks in a broadcast.
If, on your network, a host does
your machine will/may appear in the that machine's chooser list.
I don't know if it also allows an indirect request:
X -indirect <your X host>
Oh, and take also a note of this in xdm-config file:
! SECURITY: do not listen for XDMCP or Chooser requests
! Comment out this line if you want to manage X terminals with xdm

I don't know anything about gdm. Never used it.
