In the strictest legal terms, WoW servers are not legal, since they require a (basically) hijacked version of the official server software to run, which is not the property of the people running the servers.

Private servers are not authorized by Blizzard Entertainment. They could be considered illegal since the copies of the servers obviously are either hacked or stolen copies. Connecting to private servers is against the AuP and ToS you accept every time you patch or install the client. Therefore, if you are trying to connect to a private server, then you are violating the ToS and AuP and can be banned.

Is integral WoW a legal private World of Warcraft server?

All private servers are "legal" in that they are not breaking any laws. However, Blizzard considers private servers a violation of the Terms of Service of World of Warcraft in general, and therefore, any private servers are actually in violation of Blizzard Entertainment's Terms of Acceptable Use for their software. In other words, private servers are like pirated software, and you should always be careful to be sure your username and password on a Private server NEVER matches any other username/password combination you have elsewhere online.
