Why external sort better than internal sort

COBOL uses internal sort for sorting purposes, and JCL sort is the external sort, I have read it that external sort is better than the internal sort provided by COBOL, can some one provide the reason why it is so?

Internal or External sort - which is better

As with so many things - it depends. . .

It is incorrect to say that either way is Always better. . .

Post the specifics of some particular sort and possibly a more useful reply will be posted.
