You can't, unless the PDS is being referred to with a specific member name. The only way you could possibly know is to look into where they are defined.

DSORG=PS (FOR PS file)
DSORG=PO (FOR PDS) and there is no specific declaration for VSAM file

DSORG is the sub parameter of DCB. And it is optional.
