They would only rank higher is the content within the pages was superior (dynamic content might help there).
There are certainly many advantages to using php, I dont know how I could live without it now (or some dynamic language anyway).

It really doesn't make sense for the search engines to give any particular format or file type, preference over another. Therefore, I'd conclude that they treat them all the same. All evidence I've seen also seems to point to that, and the search engineers themselves have also said that file type doesn't factor into the algorithm.

I actually do have dynamic content on the site some rss feeds. I have some other websites that I added some code in the .htaccess file to run php code on html pages so they also have rss feeds with html extension, but what you said kinda sounded like a php page with dynamic content would rank higher that an html page with dynamic content, correct me if I'm wrong.

From everything I've seen and the testing I've done, there is no advantage or disadvantage to the file extensions for ranking purposes.
Where dynamic content can make a difference is how often the spiders will visit a page.
Again the file extension has little or no bearing best I can tell, since those can be changed. However if the search engine spiders detect that the content changes often, this can trigger more frequent spider visits. Like what you see with the various News sites out there where the content is updated constantly.
Frequent spidering does not affect rank as we normally think about it though. The only time this has any bearing is when some hot topic comes up. If your page gets spidered more often it may rank well right off the bat because the spider has already visited and indexed your page. Generally speaking though, those are for very specific search terms that are not highly competitive. So it's a short-term effect.
