what is txBeancon on 802.15.4

I know the basics of the 802.15.4 . but on the zigbee code, I do not understand the meaning of the "txBeacon" on the code. what is that? I know about super frame and beacon frame. But what is txBeacon?

For example on this code from
what is txBeacon on this line?/home/albert/ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/tcl/ex/wpan:
$ns_ at 0.0 "$node_(0) sscs startPANCoord 1;# startPANCoord <txBeacon=1> <BO=3> <SO=3>

I'm not entirely sure about this but TX normally means Transmit. The Beacon frame of a wireless access point sends out it's SSID at intervals. So maybe it simply means how many beacon frames have been transmitted in a given interval.
