That's just the errorlevel that whatever program you've scheduled to run returned when it finished.
Since the errorlevel is program dependent, you'll have to check with the manufacturer of the program if the program returns an errorlevel (other than 0), and if so, what it means.
If you schedule the batch script below, for example, the task scheduler will display an exit code of 0x4D2 (=1234 in decimal).
@echo off
exit 1234

Nope, that is NOT a reference for "all the exit codes"; these are, as the title says, "Windows System Error Codes" (the same ones that can be obtained localized using "net helpmsg <error code>"). A default OS application like "net.exe" will usually exit with one of these, but the batch script above will certainly not have suffered from "1234 No service is operating at the destination network endpoint on the remote system".
A programmer can decide which errorlevel his application will return under which conditions. robocopy.exe, for example, will return with a bitmask value indicating what happened during the copy and whether there were serious failures.
