It means potential visibility set, and is basically a lookup table that the quake3 engine uses to determine which parts of the map you can see from your current position (and thus only draw that).

Without PVS you need to check the distance to every location marker on the map to determine which one is closest. With PVS you only check against those that are in your PVS, which is faster.
