I would like to know in which case I need to create a customized address list, instead of just creating Distribution List.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

With Address list you can link them to AD attributes and these list update automatically when a specific user in AD has the attribute assigned to them. Distribution group/s are a manual process which you have to add the users manually.

In Exchange 2007 and up they now have DDG (Dynamic Distribution Group) which can also be leveraged to automate this process based on attributes that are associated with users in AD.

So basically you can actually use either one to accomplish what you are looking for. It really all depends on how you want to manage them. Personally I like Distributon Group or Dynamic Distribution Gorups and simply leave the Default Address lists.
