Thn this is probably just the case of the switch not being able to
handle the amount of traffic you are throwing at it. That's not
surprising I guess if you are saturating four 1000bT links.

No idea about the Sun since you haven't said how you are measuring
this--the switch might be giving priority to the port, might be
difference in how packet loss is measured. Others have suggested
seeing if ECN is being used by the Sun.
