We would update in the following order for SBS:

Update to the latest SBS Update Rollup/Service Pack first.

Run updates according to the following product groups:
Windows Server Updates (8-15 at a time then reboot)
Windows Server Security Updates (5-10 at a time then reboot)
Exchange SP1/2/3 or Exchange Rollup RU1/2/3/etc  
.NET
SQL
SharePoint , WSUS, and others.

Make sure to back up before starting. Make sure to reboot the server_before_ starting the update process if it has been up and running for more than 15 days.

Update the standalone Win2K3 Standard R2 in the above order too.

Then update BBS to the newest version.

Again, make sure your backups are GOOD (meaning they have been restored to bare metal successfully) before starting this process.
