You can define an ACS rule to assign a Data class to the offload data set.

In the "JES2 Initialization and Tuning" manual there is a description of the OFFLOAD processing and associated commands, and the user can specifically define what data set is used for the offload data set via a command, such as:

$T OFFLOAD1,DSN=dsname

And then the ACS rules can intercept this DSN and have the appropriate DC assigned to it.
