Resolution

If a report is non-bundled, the DEST assignment hierarchy is: 

. The DEST in the Report Distribution ID specification (next to the OUT field) 
. The DEST in the Distribution ID definition 
. The DEST in the JCL. 

If a report is bundled, the DEST assignment hierarchy is: 

. . The DEST in the BDIST field in the Bundle definition 
. . The DEST in the first Distribution ID encountered (and the DEST used in its definition) 
. . The DEST in the JCL. 

. For a consistent DEST, it is best to specify a BDIST Distribution ID that has a specific DEST.
