To Do docs do not have an exposed time field in the Task form, just a date field for Start Date and Due Date. These values are saved in four fields StartDate, StartDateTime, DueDate, and DueDateTime with a 12:01 PM time stamp. If you set the preference for displaying To Do's on your calendar they show up separate from the other calendar entries (reminders, meetings, appointments) above the calendar.
In contrast, with the Blackberry, if you create a new task and set a Due Date/Time the task will show on your BlackBerry calendar inline as expected. Back in Notes, the task still sits on top of the calendar, but if you peek at the DueDate and DueDateTime fields, you'll see that they are now set to the values you entered on the BlackBerry.
Here, BlackBerry has gotten it right. I'd much rather use Tasks than Reminders on the Notes calendar for tasks because tasks (or Next Action in GTD-speak) can be categorized (Context in GTD-speak) and have a status (done/not done).
