I know that on the double bass, sympathetic vibrations can make it really easy to tell if your intonation is spot on (hit the E perfectly on the D string, and watch that low E start to shake).
A sympathetic vibration shows that the intonation is spot on, while sympathetic vibrations are to be avoided. I'm out of the loop here.
