It limits the number of frames in game, and it can make Minecraft less laggy on some systems.

The limit framerate option synces the maximum number of frames-per-second to that of your monitor's display rate (also in frames-per-second) by using V-Sync. V-Sync is explained more thoroughly here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screen_tearing#V-sync
