the training to failure is used for people who train with high intensity meaning low reps (5-7) and a minimum number of sets (6-7 for big muscle groups) and (2-3 for short muscle groups).
Training to failure has a bad effort/results ratio if you do it all the time. Mid to long term you will stagnate WAY earlier than if you stop one rep short of it. Also some lifts (eg Deadlift) lend themselves far better to it than others (bench).
Also it depends on how strong you are. If you are pretty weak (Deadlift <2-2,5 BW, Bench <1-1,5) it won't be as important.
