Resolution:
A review of the client's dump indicated that there was no more below-the-line storage available.
At offset X'F0' in SARXTDSSOEP is a GETMAIN for 3288 bytes for below-the-line subpool 0 storage, and the system abended with S878-10, indicating that there was not enough virtual storage available to satisfy the request.

The recommendation is to review the SARXTD proc, for a REGION=... setting.
The client added REGION=0M, and experienced no more S878 conditions on the SARXTD task.
