Default How important is it to score well on Step 3?

I've gotten conflicting answers to this. Most people say the only thing that matters is that you pass, and that's sufficient to get you a few extra interviews. But a few people have said it's important to score in the same percentile range as your other scores, otherwise it might be seen as a red flag. What do you guys think? Is there a "minimum acceptable score", below which you might actually hurt your application? Or will passing boost your application, regardless of your score?
