Basic difference between 2 is that ..

wp_create_user allow you to create a user for your wordpress
installation while add_user_to_blog allows you to add( already
existing user) a user to a particular blog (not entire wp
installation). As you know Wordpress 3.0 onwards you can create a
network of blogs in a single wordpress installation.Depending on
situation functionality of both of these functions may vary.
