Your post title mentions SYSOUT but your post only talks about SYSUT ... which is it?

A DD statement is required to point to a data set your program references, either directly (such as opening the data set for input or output), or indirectly (such as the program name being referenced via STEPLIB).

Assuming you meant SYSOUT and not SYSUT (by the way, terminology is critical to IT and when you cannot get such terms straight between your post title and your post, it does not reflect well on you), SYSOUT is an option for a DD statement. When SYSOUT is referenced, the data set is being used only for output and may be a JES spool data, JES internal reader, or a JES writer program to transfer data (such as to SMTP for an email).
