The Mac OS X Server homepage tells of a feature "Mobile Access Server":

http://www.apple.com/server/macosx/features/mobile-access.html

But the text is very marketingy and doesn't actually say what it does? Is it a type of VPN or a remote desktop thingy or what?

According to AppleInsider (and my understanding of what they are saying), it's a VPN-like for accessing internal resources without the traditional overhead of VPN, using their own "always-on" security.

It's a kind of secure proxy. See Chapter 9, "Working with Mobile Access Service" of the Mac OS X Server Network Services Administration manual.
