It means that the neighbor is running STP (legacy STP vs RSTP/MST) and that your local STP considers the port as point-to-point. Point-to-point is an important parameter for RSTP and MST because it allows a designated port to negotiate going to forwarding immediately with a direct neighbor also running RSTP or MST.

If a port is alternate, the neighbor (if it is unique) should be designated.

HTH,
