You've got the direction of obligation reversed. When you
distribute GPLed material to someone, you may impose extra
conditions on yourself; for example, you may promise to fix
bugs for one year (presumably because the recipients have
paid you for this). Such obligations do not extend to third
parties to whom the recipients may further distribute the
software, and that must be made clear to the third parties.
That's what the clause is saying.
