Are Broker commissions typically the responsbility of the Buyer or the Seller?

The Non-Disclosure Agreement received from the Seller's broker indicates that I (the Buyer) must not purchase the business unless the agreement to purchase "provides for a commission to be paid the Listing Broker." Typical? Why is the burden on the Buyer to provide for a commission to the Seller's broker?
