What is the difference between system administrator and DBA?

What it is suppose to be, but sys admins like to cross over to the DBA's responsibilties, is DBA's take care of the database and everything around the database. Where the sysadmin's supply the physical box and OS for the DBA to work on. It has been my experience that SYSAdmin's overstep their responsibilities and try to be the DBA's boss and do his job, especially senior sysadmins.
