Focus distance is conventionally measured between object and sensor plane.
May I add that there should be a mark on the camera body that shows where the focal plane (sensor) is. It looks like a circle with a straight line drawn through it Φ. The line is the reference point for focus distance.
Here's a DPR photo of the Canon 60D. The focal-plane reference is a white mark to the left of the LCD:
