z/OS MVS JCL Reference

When creating a new z/OS UNIX file, if you do not code a PATHMODE on a DD statement with a PATH parameter, the system sets the permissions to 0, which prevents access by all users. If the z/OS UNIX file already exists, PATHMODE is checked for syntax but ignored. The permission bits are left as they are set.
