Try <b>ping host -t </b>

====================
z/OS documentation says:
<b>ping host (count 0</b>

Count echo
Sets the number of echo requests that are sent to the host.
If you do not specify the Count parameter, the default of 1 is
used. If echo is not specified, an error occurs. The echo
value must be between 0 and 2(31) -1, which is 2 147 483 647.
If echo is 0, the PING command sends echo requests
continually. To stop the PING command, press PA1 key. –

    I think Troy is correct. Although it looks like a typo, that's the correct syntax. Specifying a count of 0 willl make it send echo requests continually. Also, you could try:
    ping ?
    to see available options.
