There is not one single article that covers subpanels. The requirements are spread throughout the book.

The NEC doesnt use the term subpanel. These subpanels are refered to as panelboards. The definition is in article 100 of the NEC. The other place you need is Article 408...Switchboards and Panelboards. At anyrate you wont find an article that says "how you wire up a subpanel". Depends on what aspect of application you need to know as to what article you need to refer.
