We used to rely on the output zero from the output capacitors (in current mode converters) for phase boost. With the ESR of surface mount ceramics being in the milliohm range, we can''t do that any more. The solution is to create an output zero with a capacitor across the top resistor in the feedback path (positive regulators).

A lower ESR minimizes the voltage loss when the output capacitor supplies the load current.
