/var/log/lastlog size ???

Does anyone know why this is the way is ..

[root@viper log]# ls -als lastlog
68 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 19136220 Oct 9 18:45 lastlog


root@viper log]# du -sk lastlog
68 lastlog

unlike for example:

68 lastlog
[root@viper log]# ls -als maillog
376 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 377777 Oct 9 18:57 maillog
[root@viper log]# du -sk maillog
376 maillog

notice in lastlog size and blocks are different but not the same case with maillog ????

Any idea ??? Which is the right size in lastlog that maybe copied to tape....
