Actually...  IIRC the RJ11 was used on the VT2xx and 3xx series terminals.  The MMJ was only on the RS232 port. 

I would check, but I gave away my last non VT180 DEC terminal.

Huh; apparently the VT520 had (well, has...) a PS/2 compatible 6-pin
mini-DIN connector: http://web.mit.edu/dosathena/doc/www/ek-vt520-rm.pdf

I'm most familiar with the earlier VT models that use MMJ connectors for
the keyboard (and RS-232). That's kinda nifty, though.
