Jemz, if you only have one OS in the boot.ini file, ie no choice, then it makes no difference at all - you could leave it at 30secs or 0 secs, but ntldr will ignore that timeout value and just proceed immediately to load the OS. A window showing the default OS will not appear.
If you have more than one OS then you leave no time to make a choice... and it is likely that the window showing the OS list would not have time to appear, anyway. I have two OSs installed, and 4secs is plenty of time to make a choice if I so wish, else after 4secs the default OS loads anyway.
Clear? :)
