Izzy Video Question / Balancing Light

What does Izzy mean when he says he is "balancing for sunlight and balancing for tungsten light on the camera"? He says "I need to adjust the white balance so its matched with the sunlight". I though you did that when you did a white balance.

He then says at the end "you need to switch the white balance on the camera so it thinks blue light is white light".

I understand balancing for different light sources but I don't know what he means about changing the setting on the camera. Is there a setting on the XL1s that you have to put it to daylight, indoor, outdoor, tungsten etc THEN do your white balance?
