http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/libc.html

The provided link you can see a description of what is GLIBC . The 219 version is more recent than the 211 , so I guess depending on your version of linux, or the current it is, it will do better. I suppose.

The difference is the version of the GNU "libc" it is linked against. There is no benefit to one or the other -- different versions of Linux use different versions of "libc". Just pick the one with the latest "libc", in this case blender-2.78-rc1-linux-glibc219-x86_64.tar.bz2. It'll most likely work. If it doesn't, try the other one.

Really, there is no difference between the two, except one will work on your system, and the other might not.
