Well, several of them are called snowballs but the one I think of as
that is V. opulus 'Sterile'...had one once and was very fond of it.

V. carlcephalum is a hybrid of V. carlesii and V. macrocephalum. 
Where V. burkwoodii is V. carlesii x V. utile, so they are related. 
There are several named forms of V. burkwoodii out there but I've not
run across

Dirr is not fond of V. carlcephalum but I love mine, great form or
no; it fills the garden with a honey scent every spring.
