Where do recursion denied messages go?

Where do "recursion denied" messages go? I have a server running BIND 
9.3.1, and I'd like to see which queries it denies (I'm using 
"allow-recursion" to allow just some networks to use it recursively).

I have tried to provoke generation fo such messages by doing recursive 
queries from an external network, but nothing is shown in the logs. What 
logs? BIND has not been configured to use any special logging settings, 
so it uses whatever the default is. OS = Solaris 5.8. I see some 
"named"-messages in /var/adm/messages but nothing related to recursion 
being denied anyone.

Do I need to tweak the logging to get what I want? If so, which category 
and severity level am I looking for?
