What low-frequency clock sources can I use?

When initializing the S110 softdevice, I can choose between the different clock sources as defined by the nrf_clock_lfclksrc_t enum:

/**@brief Possible lfclk oscillator sources. */
enum NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRCS
{
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_SYNTH_250_PPM,                       /**< LFCLK Synthesized from HFCLK.                    */
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_XTAL_500_PPM,                        /**< LFCLK crystal oscillator 500 PPM accuracy.       */
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_XTAL_250_PPM,                        /**< LFCLK crystal oscillator 250 PPM accuracy.       */
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_XTAL_150_PPM,                        /**< LFCLK crystal oscillator 150 PPM accuracy.       */
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_XTAL_100_PPM,                        /**< LFCLK crystal oscillator 100 PPM accuracy.       */
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_XTAL_75_PPM,                         /**< LFCLK crystal oscillator 75 PPM accuracy.        */
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_XTAL_50_PPM,                         /**< LFCLK crystal oscillator 50 PPM accuracy.        */
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_XTAL_30_PPM,                         /**< LFCLK crystal oscillator 30 PPM accuracy.        */
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_XTAL_20_PPM,                         /**< LFCLK crystal oscillator 20 PPM accuracy.        */
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_RC_250_PPM_250MS_CALIBRATION,        /**< LFCLK RC oscillator, 250ms  calibration interval.*/
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_RC_250_PPM_500MS_CALIBRATION,        /**< LFCLK RC oscillator, 500ms  calibration interval.*/
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_RC_250_PPM_1000MS_CALIBRATION,       /**< LFCLK RC oscillator, 1000ms calibration interval.*/
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_RC_250_PPM_2000MS_CALIBRATION,       /**< LFCLK RC oscillator, 2000ms calibration interval.*/
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_RC_250_PPM_4000MS_CALIBRATION,       /**< LFCLK RC oscillator, 4000ms calibration interval.*/
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_RC_250_PPM_8000MS_CALIBRATION,       /**< LFCLK RC oscillator, 8000ms calibration interval.*/
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_RC_250_PPM_TEMP_1000MS_CALIBRATION,  /**< LFCLK RC oscillator. Temperature checked every 1000ms, if changed above a threshold, a calibration is done.*/
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_RC_250_PPM_TEMP_2000MS_CALIBRATION,  /**< LFCLK RC oscillator. Temperature checked every 2000ms, if changed above a threshold, a calibration is done.*/
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_RC_250_PPM_TEMP_4000MS_CALIBRATION,  /**< LFCLK RC oscillator. Temperature checked every 4000ms, if changed above a threshold, a calibration is done.*/
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_RC_250_PPM_TEMP_8000MS_CALIBRATION,  /**< LFCLK RC oscillator. Temperature checked every 8000ms, if changed above a threshold, a calibration is done.*/
  NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_RC_250_PPM_TEMP_16000MS_CALIBRATION, /**< LFCLK RC oscillator. Temperature checked every 16000ms, if changed above a threshold, a calibration is done.*/
};

What does the different sources here mean, and what is the consequence of using them?
