Oddly enough, "swap" in Solaris tends to have very little to do with
swap devices, other than when you are just about to start complaining
about really bad performance.  To get the behavior you intend, you
need to set swap to 2G and physical to 1G.  (I say "intend", because I
really doubt that anyone would really "want" to page or swap 1 GB to
swap devices.)

I've tried to explain this a few times before...
