I am conducting network analysis using ArcGIS Pro. I am not setting a specific date or time for the analysis and I am measuring drive time from point A to B. The below page says that "the analysis will be solved in a time neutral way if the analysis is not explicitly configured to use a date and time."
Question: what does a time-neutral way mean? does it average travel time over all days of a week and a few time points? does it randomly average travel time? 

Thanks for your help on this.

Time neutral in this case means that the travel times on roads are based on the posted speed limits. No slowdowns due to historic or current traffic is taken into consideration.

Thanks for your response. so when I am doing the analysis in U.S. (which provides predictive traffic), does it ignore historical and live traffic all together?

If you do not specify any specific time of day then it will not know which traffic numbers to use. So, the default behavior is to find routes based on published speeds.
