I guess you are talking about the function zeroinfl() from the package "pscl"? It supports all "method"s of optim() and in addition supports "EM" estimation. Typically, all yield very similar optimized likelihood values and associated parameters.

   vignette("countreg", package = "pscl") has some examples and further explanations.
