comment Does the neutral wire float or go to the neutral bus on a sub panel?
@Johnny It's personal preference. Some inspectors and/or Electricians are pickier/more anal than others. Arguments can be made either way, but in the end the bars are bonded and should provide the exact same path to ground. Remember, this is only at the main service disconnect, which may or may not be the main service panel.

@ppumkin "In a 120/240V single split phase system", yes earth and "neutral" are bonded at the main service disconnect. This is why the grounded (neutral) conductor is called the "grounded conductor". Not to be confused with the grounding conductor, which is earth.
