Here's a DFSORT/ICETOOL job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1   EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG   DD  SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG    DD  SYSOUT=*
//IN1 DD DSN=...  input file1 (FB/500)
//IN2 DD DSN=...  input file2 (FB/300)
//OUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/500)
//TOOLIN DD *
COPY FROM(IN1) TO(OUT)
COPY FROM(IN2) TO(OUT) USING(CTL1)
/*
//CTL1CNTL DD *
  INREC OVERLAY=(500:X)
/*
