z/OS MVS JCL Reference

If you specify either MAXIMUM or a value in minutes or seconds other than 1440 for the JOB statement TIME parameter, the system can reduce the processor time available to a job step. In those two cases, the system sets the time limit for the step to the smaller of the two following values:
  • The job time remaining after all previous job steps have completed.
  • The time limit that was specified or the default time limit.

See Defaults for an explanation of default time limits.
