Can someone please explain why NH3 doesn't act as a Bronsted acid (as a proton donor) when it gives its proton to the OH- that comes from CH3COOH? Gracias in advance!

In this problem the CH3COOH donates the H at the end to NH3 which makes NH3 the Bronstad base and the resulting conjugate acid NH4+ the conjugate acid to it
