The second drop down box is used to specify the valued to be searched for in the Customer drop down box (please see above).  You may change the default value in this selector from the Preferences screen.  For example, your company may always search for customers by Phone Number, so you can set the Default Customer Search Field to Phone Number in Preferences.
