As far as I know, both Serpent and Twofish has shown to be more secure than 
Rijndael. However, Rijndael was choosen as the new AES because of its overall
qualities (speed on various architectures, simplicity..).

Anyway, I doubt this is playing an important role since none of these algorithms
has been broken yet.
