expand the two wars and do a diff to determine if there is any difference in the contents
if the contents are the same then the difference is probably compression used.

i want to update classes in WEB-INF/classes of A.war;but it is creating another folder outside WEB-INF;

 
 <property name="blddir" value="../Web/classes"/>
 <property name="temp" value="c:/temp"/>


  <jar jarfile="${temp}/A.war"  update="true" destdir="${blddir}">
             <fileset dir="${temp}">
               <include name="WEB-INF/*.class" />
           </fileset>
     </jar>

it should be.
why are you not using the war task?

http://ant.apache.org/manual/CoreTasks/war.html

that could be another reason for difference.

they are both zip files, if the files are identical then the level of compression must be different.
you can check it with winzip or similiar.
