There aren't any rules about when you should use any one database server (Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, etc...) over another.

That being said, many companies already have established servers/farms with specific database engines, DBAs, backup strategies in place, etc.., so moving the CMS database to their DB of choice is a pretty common sense decision.  Also, having the CMS database be stored and backed up on a remote server mitigates the risk of a complete system failure as long as you're also backing up the FRS (File Repository System) to a remote location, too.
