if you comment out the ORDER by, then there is no error.. what causes error on ORDER by?
SELECT TOP 25 
	obj.[name], 
	count(*)AS Buffered_Page_Count ,
	count(*) * 8192 / (1024 * 1024) as Buffer_MB 
FROM sys.dm_os_buffer_descriptors AS bd 
    INNER JOIN 
    (
        SELECT object_name(object_id) AS name 
            ,index_id ,allocation_unit_id, object_id
        FROM sys.allocation_units AS au
            INNER JOIN sys.partitions AS p 
                ON au.container_id = p.hobt_id 
                    AND (au.type = 1 OR au.type = 3)
        UNION ALL
        SELECT object_name(object_id) AS name   
            ,index_id, allocation_unit_id, object_id
        FROM sys.allocation_units AS au
            INNER JOIN sys.partitions AS p 
                ON au.container_id = p.hobt_id 
                    AND au.type = 2
    ) AS obj 
        ON bd.allocation_unit_id = obj.allocation_unit_id 
GROUP BY obj.name, obj.index_id 
--ORDER BY Buffered_Page_Count DESC

Which version of SQL?  This query with the ORDER BY works on my 2008R2 and 2012 boxes.

What happens if you do this?

SELECT TOP 25 
	obj.[name], 
	count(*)AS Buffered_Page_Count ,
	count(*) * 8192 / (1024 * 1024) as Buffer_MB 
FROM sys.dm_os_buffer_descriptors AS bd 
    INNER JOIN 
    (
        SELECT object_name(object_id) AS name 
            ,index_id ,allocation_unit_id, object_id
        FROM sys.allocation_units AS au
            INNER JOIN sys.partitions AS p 
                ON au.container_id = p.hobt_id 
                    AND (au.type = 1 OR au.type = 3)
        UNION ALL
        SELECT object_name(object_id) AS name   
            ,index_id, allocation_unit_id, object_id
        FROM sys.allocation_units AS au
            INNER JOIN sys.partitions AS p 
                ON au.container_id = p.hobt_id 
                    AND au.type = 2
    ) AS obj 
        ON bd.allocation_unit_id = obj.allocation_unit_id 
GROUP BY obj.name, obj.index_id 
ORDER BY count(*) DESC

I've never been able to get a column alias to work like you're trying. I usually have to use the actual aggregate function. Maybe I'm doing something wrong myself?

Interesting. I don't get it in 2008, 2008R2, 2012, or 2014.
Do you still get it when you replace Buffered_Page_Count with count(*) in that last line ?
