Almost all professionals jump more off the front leg than the rear leg (I believe this is true with either stance, but more so with the platform). At the time of the jump, usually the server has brought his weight forward over the front leg with his hip even extending into the court. Because the rear leg is mostly unweighted, it doesn't do much of the jump.

I believe you should be balanced during the toss, but then the weight should naturally move forward and then up.
