How does project allocation to a program work?

When you allocate a child project to a program, there is an allocation percentage that can be used. The Project Management User Guide does not go into the detail of how it functions...if I allocate my project to two different programs at 50%, what does that mean? Is there a financial linkage? What does the percentage mean?
