I not sure there are really much differences per se. I like to put all system specific stuff in /etc/crontab with the user specified so that I can see everything in 1 place, as opposed to having to do something like crontab -e, crontab -u www -e , etc..
but AFIAIK cron just mashing them all together and runs them.
On shared hosting boxes I tend to touch /etc/cron/allow to prevent all users from randomly creating events in cron, and only override it if they ask nicely..
