Is tipping in cash better for the server?

My father (from NZ where tipping is *NOT* the norm) is insistent on leaving the tip in cash when on holiday in N Am so that it can't be pocketed by management (he usually pays by credit card). But he'll leave a smaller tip in cash if he doesn't have the correct change on him. I think it's probably better to give the full (15-20%) tip on the credit card. I want to know - does anyone have any experience that would back him (or me) up?
