There is no syntax error. I tried it myself.

Then the input you are using does not match the data you posted -- or is just taking ages to process because the files are enormous. Please post a relevant sample.

If the files are too large, you'll need to sort and join them anyway.

a.log: RBOSK-374            AAA-B04-D16-K01
a.log: 0  XXX 602 14/1          R14A        
a.log: 2  XXX 119 128/1         R1B         
a.log: 3  XXX 119 128/1         R1B         
a.log: 4  XXX 119 128/1         R1B         
a.log: 5  XXX 231 201/1         R10B        
a.log: 6  XXX 231 201/1         R5C

b.log: RBOSK-70  NB9292 
b.log: RBOSK-374 NB2781 
b.log: RBOSK-73  JO1794 
b.log: RBOSK-83  OK1987  
b.log: RBOSK-85  LY1983

I would want to file "a" to be like this:
a.log: NB2781          AAA-B04-D16-K01      
a.log: 0  XXX 602 14/1          R14A        
a.log: 2  XXX 119 128/1         R1B         
a.log: 3  XXX 119 128/1         R1B         
a.log: 4  XXX 119 128/1         R1B         
a.log: 5  XXX 231 201/1         R10B        
a.log: 6  XXX 231 201/1         R5C

do the a.log and b.log files actually contain the text "a.log: " and "b.log: " ?
