The limit 3273 is also based on the number of single DD statements allowed for a TIOT. Some installation may allow to concatenate upto 3273 DDs, because the IBM-supplied default TIOT size is 32K. You need 64K TIOT to accept 3273 DDs in a single job.

So if you have 64K TIOT, you can use 3273 DDs per job (may be in a single step as well). If you have 32K TIOT, you can concatenate upto 1635 DDs.

For information about changing the size of the TIOT, see ALLOCxx parmlib member section in z/OS MVS Initialization and Tuning Reference. For information about how dynamic allocation might cause changes to the task input/output table (TIOT). see z/OS MVS Programming:Authorized Assembler Services Guide.
