So I think the problem in 1st execution was the commented statement.
So we should not use any commented statement in DFSORT.

sqlcode1 has already answered this. Comments and remarks can be used with DFSORT, but as always, the correct syntax must be used.

Use of word "any" sounded pretty hyperbolic to me, so I was wondering if it's a correct sentence to be used generally, when talking about DFSORT.

Of course not. DFSORT supports comment statements just fine. As sqlcode1 said, //* is a JCL comment, not a DFSORT comment.

Code:

//*  THIS IS A JCL COMMENT
//SYSIN DD *
* THIS IS A DFSORT COMMENT
