If the will of spouse A provide that assets pass to the children after death of parents, and A passes, the will clause is triggered and children would inherit A's interest. Spouse B for example may not undo that, and need to adhere to A's will.
By comparison, if A and B left assets to each other only, nothing about children in the will. On A passing, B can do whatever he wants with assets since left to B outright.
