As the load of the controller increases it will not scale in a master slave setup of the clusters.
In case of peer to peer all nodes can respond as masters increasing the scaling capacity.

The master is the unified endpoint for the cluster. Single "source of truth" for the entire cluster. As load increases the capacity of master is exhausted. Also might lead to single point of failure.

When moving to peer to peer architecture, there is more scaling and no single point of failure. No single node or process is master. All can serve the requests based on their availability. More advantages can be added with implementation of gossip protocol in turn increasing the maintainability of nodes.
