Adding tip to charge may cost server 2-3%?

I just read i think in Real Simple, that at some restaurants, if you add the tip to the bill, the server is then deducted the amount of service charge the retaurants pays to use the credit card service.

I have never even thought of it. I now will start asking before doing so. So those of you that do or have worked in the industry, is that a common practice. Is it only in large cities, or is it pretty common across the board?
