Just checked here: you get a WARNING entry in the log, but the SYSCC is not changed, so you won't have a problem in a batch job.
But have you considered using a data step with
data basedata; set basedata appenddata ; run;
In this case, you get no WARNING, and the format from basedata is kept.

Netezza DATE datatype is displayed as DATE9. format in SAS...
My main concern is any option available to control implicit date format conversion to MMDDYY10. instead of DATE9. in Libname statement..

How about defining a view to the netezza table that sets the correct attribute, and then use that view as the data= in proc append?
Another option is to use the stringdates= option in the libname statement and treat all date values as character until you finally need them as numeric in SAS.
