Wiggled bonds are used for undefined stereo chemistry. Racemates are drawn as one enantiomer but with the stereo attribute 'rac' for the whole molecule. B is showing a racemate whereas A has an unknown stereo chemistry. Unknown stereo chemistry is a rare case. Sometimes, published papers have forgotten to define the stereo chemistry, or, a compound is only identified by mass spectroscopy.
