logging of desination ip-address ?

While bind9 allows fine-grained control of ip-address usage
and so forth, the destination address is not logged.

For example I recently wanted to find out whether
  cisco boomerang dns
  spurious  ./NS  (mainly from China)
  spurious A.ROOT-SERVERS.NET/A  (from China & Japan)
queries were arriving at the resolving or authoritative ip-address
of our name-servers, and I ended up using tcpdump. Luckily there
was at least one well-known source address for each of these types.

I think it could be useful to have a compile-time option enabling
whether query/update logging included destination ip/port.
