SYSOUT=Z writes to output class Z, which is defined at your site for a particular purpose.

SYSOUT=* writes to the default output class, defined by MSGCLASS= on the JOB statement or, if not there, by the JES initialization parameters for your site.

Hi,

A '*' for SYSOUT class indicates that the class given by the MSGCLASS= parameter on the job statement is to be used for this SYSOUT DD statement. And different classes could mean different handling - at the shop I am now, one class is routed to Printer.
