I believe this field is used for the layered codec model with H.263+.

This is from AVC-1125:

"The sessionDependency field is set by the MC to indicate when a session is
dependent on another session for meaningful decoding of the its data."

I believe sessionDependency identifies the session which has the base layer
or enhancement layer for the video (if this is a video session).

Hope this helps.
