ZBB = Zero Bug Bounce
As we start moving from the writing code phase into the fixing bugs phase, the development teams start pushing towards zero bug bounce. If you’ve noticed that the number of blog posts from the C# team has down a bit recently, that’s one explanation.
Why is it called zero bug bounce?

Reaching ZBB demonstrates two things. First, it shows that you have gotten rid of your bug backlog, and it also shows that your fix rate is greater than your incoming rate
