Nothing really, except that the input to SYSIN DD * ends at the next JCL statement, at the end of the job stream, or at the end delimiter /*.

If you code SYSIN DD DATA, then you must include the end delimiter /*.

All of these work the same:
Code:

//SYSIN DD *
THIS IS A TEST
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*

//SYSIN DD *
THIS IS A TEST
/*
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*

//SYSIN DD DATA
THIS IS A TEST
/*
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*

//SYSIN DD DATA,DLM=@@ <= delimiter override
THIS IS A TEST
@@
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
