For the factory when they setup the steering. reinstall it back into the hole you took it out of, ignore the other hole.

the outer (rearward) hole will allow for less steering effort, but will increase the number of turn of the steering wheel to go from lock to lock.

Optimists think the glass is half full.
Pessimists think the glass is half empty.
Engineers realize it's twice as big as it needs to be.

I was told the outer hole was for manual steering and the inner for power for the reasons listed by lsejlowe
