I press F1 when cursor is on intnum, and it says:

 It can be a two component vector [[1], z] or [[-1], z], where [1] or
 [-1] indicates +infty or -infty and z is coded as follows. If z is
 zero, slowly decreasing. If z is real positive, exponentially
 decreasing, of the type exp(-zX). If z<-1, very slowly decreasing
 like X^(-z).

I can't judge who is more correct, you or the docs.
