What package pulls in default fonts?


I got missing Unicode in the latest xkcd comic[0]. Turns out it's trying
to show emoji icons and these doesn't seem to be available on a standard
Debian desktop install. There are similar issues with the BBS on Boing
Boing (On all Disqus forums?) and I'm sure, many other sites.

I'm guessing these fonts are provided OOTB on Windows and Mac, and it
would be nice to provide the same on Debian. At least the
ttf-ancient-fonts package provides this, but I'm not sure where to file
a bug for it to be installed by default. 

Which package pulls in the default fonts for a desktop installs?
