There is a Flash on ResourceLink, FLASH10041, that explains in detail how 3097 failures affect the SYSPLEX. There is APAR OW44231 that affects recovery. Without it, IPLs are required. With it, message IEA015A THIS SYSTEM HAS LOST ALL CONNECTION TO THE SYSPLEX TIMER (and other info text) is issued. After the 3097 is recovered, you can issue a RETRY. If recovery is not possible, reply with ABORT.
Recommendation: Refer to FLASH10041, titled “Surviving a 9037-002 Sysplex Timer Failure – OS/390 APAR Enhancement”. I found it on ResourceLink using the search argument 3097.
I hope that this helps.
