Assuming these buffer drops indicate transmission queue drops, then it tells us from time-to-time the output port is being overdriven. Whether this is bad, and how bad, is both dependent on how often it is happening and the kind of traffic that it is happening to. TCP adapts its transmission rate to drops, so usually if they don't average more than about 1%, it's not a problem. Non-TCP traffic can be very sensitive to drops (and also queuing delays before the drops) but how much so is very variable; depends on the application.
