Ugly fonts in Ubuntu Server installation

Bug Description

After installing openjdk-6-jdk on a default Ubuntu desktop installation, the fonts in Java applications look nice and smoothly antialiased (screenshot 1).

When I install the same package on a Ubuntu server (and have the window rendered on the desktop system using ssh -X forwarding), the fonts look ugly (screenshot 2).

I suspect some missing dependency of the jdk package that is normally pulled in by ubuntu-desktop (which isn't installed on server installations).

does installation of ttf-dejavu-core on the server fix this?
