Classic smooths the mesh to three- and four-sided faces, while Quad Output outputs only four-sided faces. The most robust and commonly used method is NURMS (non-uniform rational MeshSmooth), which allows for much more sophisticated control, such as weighting each control vertex. MeshSmooth also has the ability to apply smoothing in levels, so that part of an object can be smoothed differently than the rest. Iterations control how much the mesh is subdivided. You can select different values for the iterations shown in the viewports and for the iterations that are actually rendered.
