We present recent results on heavy flavor jet production in association with weak vector bosons using proton-antiproton collision data collected with the D0 detector at center of mass energy sqrt{s}=1.96 TeV. We discuss in particular the measurements of W+b/c-jet production cross-sections and the ratio of cross-sections, sigma(Z+2b-jet)/sigma(Z+2jets). Study of these processes provide tests of perturbative QCD predictions and non-perturbative effects. These processes are also important backgrounds to many precision SM measurements as well as to searches for new physics.
