Understanding business rules DOES matter. Coding a solution for a problem you don't understand is an uphill battle. When you're questioned about the issue you coded to, it can sometimes be embarrassing to admit you didn't understand the problem to begin with but you knew what the solution was. It's too easy sometimes to go in and change a value or an if statement without comprehending the surrounding issue, but it's difficult to defend it in the long run.
