Sometimes disk sectors go bad. When the disk detects that, it
reads whatever it can and writes it somewhere else.

You can expect the number to be reset to zero either on repair
or after a power-cycle.

A small number in CPS is fine. If it starts going up, or the
reallocated sector count starts increasing, you might have an 
impending disaster.
