Somewhat of a guess but it may be a water bypass hose. If a lot of water enters the main air intake because of extreme spashing or high water this secondary air path prevents a high vacuum from being created that could cause the engine to pull the water up into the air filter causing water to be injested, which usually will destroy the engine.
