Right.  Just as you said: the former is the system crontab, the latter
is the root user's crontab.  The former has an extra field that
indicates which user to run a command as, the latter is exactly the
same as any other user's crontab (and is stored in /var/cron/tabs just
all the other user crontabs).

I'm not quite sure what your confusion is: did my previous paragraph
eliminate it?
