I found this description in the z/OS V1R7.0 DFSMS Access Method Services for Catalogs Manual for the BLDINDEX command:

Quote:

{SORTCALL|NOSORTCALL}
use this parameter to choose whether or not to call DFSORT to sort the alternate index.

SORTCALL
specifies that you want DFSORT to sort the alternate index. EXTERNALSORT, INTERNALSORT, WORKFILES, CATALOG, IDCUT1, and IDCUT2 are ignored when DFSORT is called. If DFSORT is not available, BLDINDEX uses the IDCAMS internal sort. SORTCALL is the default.

NOSORTCALL
tells BLDINDEX to use the IDCAMS internal sort (or external sort if specified) instead of DFSORT to sort the alternate index. When the IDCAMS internal or external sort is used, SORTMESSAGELEVEL, SORTDEVICETYPE, SORTMESSAGEDD and SORTFILENUMBER specifications are prohibited.
