This option is not required but can be utilized if you need to use "Unicode" in the displayname. When sending externally if the value is set to true you can use the simply display name instead of the name of the distribution group. Below are some links which help describe how it works and when it can be of use.

Hi,

Also check this,

3.6. Advanced Dynamic Distribution Group Properties

The simple display name option allows you to provide a simplified group name for older applications that may not be able to understand dynamic distribution group names that contain some Unicode characters.

Hope that helps too :)
