Many thanks for your reply, Hans.

Hyphenation is the same in both documents.

Page break is wrong when any of the three values (brokenpenalty,
widowpenalty or clubpenalty) is 0 or above 9999.

I replacing \subsection with \section gives the right page break:

    \setupbodyfont[pagella, 12.6pt]
    \dorecurse{4}{\input zapf\par}
    \input knuth

Why does \subsection cause a different page break than \section?

Many thanks for your help,
