Where is physical data for spooled files stored?

I read information a while back that the spool file data is stored in a physical file on the iSeries. Can you please tell me the name of the PF and Library where it gets stored?
Data for spooled files is stored in the library QSPL. The file names may vary but should all start with a 'Q', and each physical will have a single member per spooled file.
