Any idea?

It isn't necessary and you shouldn't need it for your model. RANDOM _residual_ serves the same purpose in GLIMMIX as the REPEATED statement does in MIXED. So, if you don't need to model repeated effects, leave it out.

It can probably used for other nifty things, but its purpose is to model R side effects.
