[dm-crypt] Security concern: gpg keyfile vs passphrase

I'm encrypting my whole system under LUKS, and I've seen that in the
wiki of Arch and Gentoo they suggest to use a keyfile and encrypt it
Why is more secure to encrypt a keyfile with a passphrase and then
encrypt the device with the keyfile rather than encrypting the device
directly with the passphrase?
Against a brute force attack the passphrase is the same, so they should
be equally secure, am I wrong?
