I'm no drifting expert, but just from my own experiences in letting the tail out, I feel LSD makes the entire experience more controllable, as opposed to if you had an open differential.
The reason I say this is because with a LSD, when you lose traction with one wheel, you get equal amounts of power to both wheels. This will cause both wheels to either grip, or spin, either way it's predictable and you can compensate with your throttle.
With an open diff, you get a dragging tire, and it's sometimes hard to predict which one it will be.
