On it's own it's a pretty meaningless phrase.

Tolerance is what you would tolerate, and depends largely on how good an ear you have.
All clarinets have some discrepancy between perfect and actual pitch on at least some notes, it's just not possible to make one "perfectly" in tune (and perfectly is a moveable feast anyway - is G# same as Ab ??)

some regions of the clarinet are particularly dufficult to tune and differences of +/- 10 cents may be unavoidable whereas in other areas 3-4 cents or better should exist.

The most important factor is how the dicrepancies are distributed along the scale and how easily correctable by a good embouchure.

my two-penneth anyway.
