Do plants do better when the water drains after watering rather than if the water is not allowed to drain (like in a saucer)?

If a plant is left sitting in a pool of water, the soil will not drain/shed the water the way it was designed to (until the water in the saucer is depleted). This means less oxygen is held in the soil because of the over saturation (It causes the plant suffocate a bit).
