Sorry for the confusion. Electricians understand 'side' to mean the same
'leg' of service, not physical location in the panel. Forgot for a
moment that we're all not electricians =)
To clarify by using your diagram, the recommendation is to have it all
on A or all on B.
To further clatrify, we do not use two-phase power in the US for
residential use. Only single and - rarely - three phase systems. It is
confusing but that the way it is. In a nutshell, sending two legs of
power from the transformer on the pole, each 180 degrees out of phase
with each other, into the home is still single-phase. Just two legs of
it in a very efficient manner.
