The table filegroup is where the table is stored, the text filegroup is where text or image type data (i.e. binary data  like Word or JPEG files) in the table are stored .

to add to the explanation:
in sql server, short values of TEXT data can be store inline in the table filegroup, while longer text value will be store in the text  filegroup, and in the row itself will only be stored a pointer value. This will be transparent for the SQL using the values.

This "splitting" is used for better managibility of the ususally rather large TEXT database parts, to be able to configure backups in a more easy way.
