It refers to real or actual goodness.

So for example in theories such as proportionalism, there is the real/actual 'ontic' good/evil of whether an action confirms to God's natural moral law (good) or violates it (evil).

However then there are other aspects such as intention and the relative value/disvalue to consider.

So proportionalists think there is more to the rightness or wrongness of an action than merely whether it follows God's natural moral law or not, thus requiring the distinction between its actual physical following of the natural law (which they call ontic) and then other aspects of the action which they also deem relevant.
