This is what the "help" section tells in CNX2:

Active D-Lighting (Images Taken with Active D-Lighting Only)

Active D-Lighting, available only for cameras that provide this functionality within the camera itself, was designed for photographing subjects where it is difficult to capture detail in both highlights and shadows. If Active D-Lighting is enabled ion the camera when a photograph is taken, the image will be underexposed to preserver highlight information. If that image is later processed in Capture NX 2, Active D-Lighting will be applied to brighten the shadows and create the appropriate levels of tonality throughout the image, resulting in an image in which details are present in both highlights and shadows.

This functionality is provided in addition to the D-Lighting functionality found in the Adjust menu.

You can use the provided pull-down menu to modify the amount of Active D-Lighting applied to your image. Choose from the following options:
Unchanged

This option reverts back to the setting used within the camera when the image was captured.

Off
This option prevents any Active D-Lighting from being applied to the image.

Low

This option applies a low level of Active D-Lighting to the image and is recommended for images shot with very high ISO

Normal

This option applies a moderate level of Active D-Lighting to the image and is recommended for the majority of images.

High

This option applies a high level of Active D-Lighting to the image and is recommended for images shot with low ISO.

Extra High

Select this option to apply the highest level of Active D-Lighting. Recommended for images taken at low ISO sensitivities.
