Why? What extra information does that add?

 

You could define a format that does that.

proc format;
  value na . = 'NA' other=[best12.];
run;

data test;
  set sashelp.class(obs=1);
  do age=age,.,._,.A,.Z ;
    output;
  end;
run;

proc print data=test;
  format age na.;
run;

Result

Obs     Name     Sex        Age         Height    Weight

 1     Alfred     M               14      69       112.5
 2     Alfred     M     NA                69       112.5
 3     Alfred     M                _      69       112.5
 4     Alfred     M                A      69       112.5
 5     Alfred     M                Z      69       112.5

If you want the other 27 missing values to also print as NA then define the format like this instead:

value na ._-.Z = 'NA' other=[best12.];

Or 

value na low-high=[best12.] other='NA';
