power supply charge distribution

My new server has a new internal power supply ANTEC  550 WATT AT x 12 V v2.3
This model has 3 +12v rails,
Is it ok if I conected all three HDDs to one rail or is it better to use three rails one for each HDD??
Regards,

According to tests, max current (one voltage) for single HDD is near 1A. As you can see in power supply specifications:

max current for one rail is 20A, so you can connect all drives to one rail.
