On the 320,the ailerons are drooped by 5 degrees when flaps are selected.The reason is to keep as constant as possible the caracteristics of the airfoil,meaning without too great an airflow discontinuity over the wingspan.

Thanks guys - but your replies are conflicting. Re the LAF, I hear that this is largely ineffective and some airlines have actually deleted this facility. Re- the droop, I have talked to pilots who say it exists, and others who have never heard of it. I guess if it is not in the manual, it must only be a figment.
Any body else who can confirm or deny the existence of the aileron droop?

The B767-300 has inboard aileron droop. It is mechanically driven from the flap drive system. As the flaps extend, the inboard ailerons will be lowered to 10 degs. As for the -200 & -400, I'm not sure.
