Boltzmann Equation

On page 28 of the course reader it says (at least from what I understand) that in the Boltzmann Equation a large error in W means there will be a small error in S. Can someone explain this further please?

I think this is due to the natural log. It increases slowly so even if W (think of it as x) has a large error, the difference in S (y) will be smaller in comparison.
