Hi!
A WSDL document describes the services made available by a web service and the format of the data send to, and received from, the web service. Thus, the WSDL is to be consumed by (prospective) clients of the web service, in order to know how to use the web service.
A deployment descriptor tells some kind of container, for instance an EJB container, how to deploy some kind of artifact, for instance EJB. A deployment descriptor is used by the container in order to know how to configure your web application, your EJBs or your web service when it is running in the container.
Best wishes!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
