It's has the same meaning as "mayday, mayday" or emergency.

Regarding Pan declarations, In Australia at least it is considered an urgency message while a Mayday declaration is considered a distress message. ATS/ATC may treat both as if full emergency procedures are required.

I live near a military base where Pan declarations are made almost every day of operations and the military ATS/ATC do not call upon the aerodrome emergency support personnel. But I have heard civil Pan declarations that were treated the same as a Mayday declaration.

In both situations the controllers do try to extract as much information for the source as possible without adding to the pilots' workload.

It means urgency here in the states also, MAYDAY is for emergency. The correct way to call it though is to say "Pan Pan" "Pan Pan" "Pan Pan" (little bit of book trivia there...lol)
