I suggest you to check DesignBuilder program help, more specifically at the sub-chapter "Comfort Radiant Temperature Calculation"

In summary:

This field specifies the type of Mean Radiant Temperature (MRT) calculation the user wishes to use for the thermal comfort model. There are currently two options:

1-Zone averaged where the standard MRT is used in comfort calculations.

2-Surface with largest window which calculates the radiant temperature for a person close to the largest window in each zone.
