Maximum number of records returned by the server

Hello, I had a question regarding the max # of records setting on AGS 10.1 when creating a service.

Does that apply to the findTask in a JS API where a user can search for matching criteria and the results are returned in a data grid.  Or does it apply to a total of features returned in a dynamic map service (REST) when a map is rendered?  Or both? 

Also, I understand the AGS and browser's performance is impacted when raised above the default 1000.  Is there a number to stay away from?  2000?  3000? 5000?

Please clarify.  Thanks!!
