shashanktrivedi will become famous soon enough

If 0, then the message is sent immediately. If -1, then the message is sent delayed in zero time.(Reference Flexsim Usermanual)

I am little bit curious to understand what is difference in between immediately and delayed in zero time for var4 parameter in TASKTYPE_SENDMESSAGE.

Kindly suggest.

An immediate message gets called right away like a function call. It will happen as the next bit of code. This is like the sendmessage() command.

When a message is delayed with 0 time it will get scheduled at the end of all events currently happening at that simulation time. This is the same as using senddelayedmessage() with a delay of 0.
