Business-logic in 3-tier architecture

Theoretically, everyone knows that business logic is supposed to be in the middle-tier according to the 3-tier architecture. This seems to be counter-intuitive to Active Database concepts such as putting business logic in triggers with help from store procedures in the DBMS (which are all in the 3rd-tier of the 3-tier architecture.)

Question: do you guys know of any guidelines (or may be even stds) proposed to decide when certain business logic is better put in the backend (DB triggers/stored procedures)?
