z/OS MVS JCL Reference

In a JES2 system, if you do not code a DEST parameter, JES directs the sysout data set to the default destination for the input device from which the job was submitted.

In a JES3 system, if you do not code a DEST parameter, the default destination is the submitting location. For jobs submitted through TSO/E and routed to NJE for execution, the default is the node from which the job was submitted, and the destination ANYLOCAL.

If a specified destination is invalid, the job fails.
Note: Most JCL syntax errors are detected and reported by JES or the functional subsystem that is processing the sysout data set, rather than when the system first reads in the JCL.
