In brief: Holosystolic
Classically, a vsd results in increased blood flow from left to right ventricle due to pressure differences and results in a holosystolic murmur. Several situations where a diastolic murmur may be heard is 1) large vsd results in aortic cusp sucking into vsd and aortic regurg, 2) very large defect with so much flow to lungs and back to left side with diastolic rumble through mitral valve.

In brief: No u
No usually classic murmur is pansystolic (all the way through systole but stops with the second heart sound).
