Authenticated Users can be used when you have multi-domain forests.

If you had a single domain forest then you shouldn't notice any difference from either group.

Yes - to clarify - a domain user will have been authenticated in your domain, an authenticated user may have been authenticated by a trusted sever in your forest. If you have a single domain then the two are identical.
