Distribution groups do not have a security principal and therefore cannot be used to assign network resources.  So I would see distribution groups as being ideal for scenarios where you want to create seperate groups to grant users network/public folder access but do not want them included in e-mail distribution lists and vice versa.

e.g. your head office accounts controller that wants access to a satellite office accounts but does not want to be included in their group e-mails.

Query based DLs are just that, DLs and cannot be used to assign acess to resources.
