I'm new here and currently i'm going through Salesforce tutorials. I found a statement as below:

Multilevel master-detail relationships do not support division transfers.

Can anybody make me understand what does it mean?

  • If you are not getting the above statement, please check This link for detailed information. In that page heading "Master-Detail Relationships", 7th paragraph. – SFDC Mafia - VIC Jul 14 '15 at 11:17

Divisions let you segment your organization's data into logical sections, making searches, reports, and list views more meaningful to users. For example, you can create a report to show the opportunities for just the North American division, allowing you to get accurate sales numbers for the North American sales team. Divisions are useful for organizations with extremely large amounts of data.

Where is "Division" in Salesforce? How do I find? See Setting Division

So, statement says that when you have multilevel master relationship it won't allow you to change/transfer division for custom objects. Otherwise divisions can be changed easily.
