Incase you are wondering what the third parameter is, it is PASS.

Whenever the third keyword is not specified , it takes the same value as the second

The above link is out of date. This is the latest:
DISP Parameter
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

The link provided by NicC does not say this. PASS is not a valid conditional disposition parameter.

This is partially true. From the MVS JCL Reference manual V2.3, page 169:
If you omit the abnormal termination disposition subparameter, the default is the disposition specified or implied by the second subparameter. However, if the second subparameter specified PASS, the default abnormal termination disposition is DELETE for a NEW data set or KEEP for an existing data set.
