default setting in menu for af fine tuning?

I read a thread that I can't seem to find discussing the default setting for af fine tuning on what it means and how to use it if a person has a slight front focus problem still at a +20 af fine tuning setting?  Nikon doesn't really explain what the meaning is of the default setting.  In fact Nikon does not explain af fine tuning hardly at all and does not recommend it.  It seems to me that the tolerances between nikon lenses and cameras are so loose that in a lot of cases af fine tuning has to be accomplished.  Could someone explain this again to me?
