When you configure g0/1 as a trunk the result is that all vlans are allowed on the trunk. When you add the command 

switchport trunk allow vlan 20

the result is that only vlan 20 is allowed on the trunk. All other vlans are not allowed on that trunk.

We do not know much about your environment and what you are attempting to achieve. But if you have a server and you want only vlan 20 to be able to access the server then I would suggest that a good solution would be to use an access list to restrict access.

allow vlan 20 ?? I think you need to allow vlan1 also.

switchport trunk allow vlan 20

the result is that only vlan 20 is allowed on the trunk. All other vlans are not allowed on that trunk.

An addition to the excellent point that @Richard Burts made is that the default on a trunk is to allow all known VLAN's. If you are trying to pass a VLAN through a switch and it doesn't know about it, that traffic will get dropped. VTP transparent will (I think) let unknown VLAN's pass, but any other VTP mode will definitely not pass unknown VLAN's.
