Structural classes are used to create instance of an object in LDAP directory.

Auxiliary classes are some kind of containers with attributes which can be used to extend structurall classes with additional attributes.
You can add many different aux classess to structurall class definition if You want to extend it with some attributes.

This is very simple and maybe not very accurate (technically) description but I think it shows the idea behind structural and aux classess.
