I recently stumbled across the ROLL UP function in SQL Server, apparently there are two synatx of it where one is

1) GROUP BY fieldname1,fieldname2 WITH ROLL UP

2) GROUP BY ROLL UP (fieldname1, fieldname2)

I was wondering if there's a difference to the two syntax? I'm returning the same results with either. Thank you.

Both are same but "WITH ROLLUP" is Non-ISO Compliant Syntax.

Non-ISO-Compliant Syntax
[ GROUP BY [ ALL ] group_by_expression [ ,...n ]
    [ WITH { CUBE | ROLLUP } ]
