Standard error

In statistics, a measure of the possible error in an estimate. Plus or minus 2 standard errors usually provides a 95% confidence interval.

If the null hypothesis of exogeneity is rejected, OLS estimates are inconsistent and conclusions about causal effects should be based on IV estimates; failure to reject the null means that OLS estimates may be interpreted as causal effects are preferable because of their smaller standard errors.
