worker_connections and worker_rlimit_nofile

I used to use worker_connections but wen I use it, I got a lot of too many
open files in the error log.

Now, I changed it to worker_rlimit_nofile 10240 and the problem has been
solved (I google it and found the solution).

I just want to ask, what's the differences between worker_connections and
worker_rlimit_nofile? Why worker_connections will casue too many open files
problem? Thanks.

#user  nobody;
worker_processes  2;
worker_rlimit_nofile 10240;

#error_log  logs/error.log;
#error_log  logs/error.log  notice;
#error_log  logs/error.log  info;

#pid        logs/;

events {
#    worker_connections  10240;
