That point, for the USA, would be when a treasury auction fails. It is not arbitrarily deciding not to borrow more money.
The proper comparison would be if the bank assures a business owner that they can borrow more money if they need it, and the business owner thinking thats too much money to owe, I'll just either stop paying a couple bills, or default on my current loan to the bank.
