If a wild card team has a better regular season record than the division winner they're playing, who gets home field advantage in the series?

WC winners never get home field advantage.

I figured as much, but couldn't get a hard answer from MLB.com.

Unless the wild card is from the AL and it's the World Series these days.

Yep. ON2 is right. In 2003 the Marlins won more games than the Cubs, but the Cubs had homefield because they won the worst division in baseball.
