I would say, none. Most likely they are linked to each other. Try:

ls -l /usr/sbin/apachetl

to see what I mean. It's like vi - vim. Most systems today have only vim installed, but typing vi, would also calls vim.

It could be different if your default HTTP deamon is not an apache server, there are still others http servers than just apache servers .
