Quick Question - Which side of plywood goes up?

I'm putting in some ceramic tile, and have it all down pat. What I'm a bit unsure of is which side of the plywood goes up.

I have AC grade plywood (All the store had besides sheathing and OSB), so one side is sanded completely smooth (Or close to it) while the other side has some knots and it a bit rougher.

Which side goes up, that the thinset / cement board will go on?

"A" will work. Almost seems a shame doesn't it!

A would be the sanded side I assume? And it's the ones that faces up and get's the backerboard installed on?

And yeah - it hurt having to pay for such expensive plywood when I know I didn't need it!
