trace name ERRORSTACK vs. trace name context forever

Got a client getting 3120 errors. Oracle advised them to set

alter system set events '3120 trace name ERRORSTACK level 3'

Which I am familiar with. However then they came back and told them to set the same event minus the ERRORSTACK keyword.

alter system set events '3120 trace name context forever, level 3

What is the difference? They are not getting any dumps when the latter is set even though the error is occurring?
