There are so many different kind of tunnings. I guess It depends what kind of sungs you play.

Punk bands mostly just play power chords so there really isn't any need for anything other than standard. Metal bands on the other hand, down or drop tune to get lower sounding "chuggas" when playing those 0s.

I wouldn't drop tune just for the heck of it unless you're gonna use those extra lower notes, but if you want to experiment, go right on ahead.

To be helpful, Any punk song I ever learned was in standard, and with good reason, as Jebus pointed out, punk bands don't usually need down tuned because they only play power chords and rarely open strings, If you want to write some open chorded intro or something to a song then experiment with down tuning and stuff, but for the most part stick to open tunings for punk, you will want a brighter sound anyway.
