Navigator/Communicator, and thus Mozilla, is a great enabler for selling server solutions, since many customers wants to buy or get their client software from the same vendor as the server software/hardware.

For Sun it is essential to be able to offer both, and it is essential to be able to offer browsers on platforms Microsoft couldn't care less about

Thus, spending $30.000 on Mozilla, which is pocket change for Sun, is a cheap way of improving the total package Sun will offer customers that will be buying Suns or Netscapes enterprise software offerings.
