it should be run level 2 in debian. 

if you are looking to do a big dist-upgrade and want to shut X down to
avoid the system load in the process, then ctrl-alt-f[123456], login
as root, execute "invoke-rc.d gdm stop" to gracefully bring down
X. then proceed with your upgrade and either reboot (if you've changed
kernels) or "invoke-rc.d gdm start" to restart X.
