Differences between Binary and OctetString?

I am curious how OpenLDAP handles data differently between the Binary and Octet String syntaxes?

The iPlanet/AOL/Sun schema defines a userPassword as a Binary syntax, and I notice that the 2.1.x schema for OpenLDAP defines it as an Octet String. Does the octetStringMatch work better/different with password values?
