The UCI protocol is documented here: http://wbec-ridderkerk.nl/html/UCIProtocol.html

This is Arenga GUI feature. From Arena HELP:

Arena - Help - Engines - Analysis Lines

Next best move:

The engine searches for the next best move. It is necessary, that the engine has calculated (not analysed, but calculated and executed) a move already in the same position. Arena takes back this move and sends the engine a special command to calculate a new move. If the engine always 'finds' the same move, it does not support this function.

It is not variable/flag. GUI is mangling back and forward position (using UCI `position` command) in a hope that bestmove will randomly change.
