Doesn't really tell you anything. Adding two batteries would mean there is more power (watts, not just volts) available to the starter. If something was stuck, more power could unstick it. Or, battery #1 might be low and battery #2 was simply enough to fire up a perfectly good starter. Or, an intermittent fault might have just co-incidentally been passed when you went to both batteries.
