In terms of software, legacy simple means old. And often times it means no longer supported or maintained. Take a look at this Wikipedia article on Legacy Code which explains in a little more detail. So Legacy Classes means old classes that are likely no longer supported or maintained.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
