If you have this set to no (options section), it should be ok:

        # enable or disable DNS usage
        # syslog-ng blocks on DNS queries, so enabling DNS may lead to
        # a Denial of Service attack
        # (default is yes)
That seems to be the case on Ubuntu edgy, and they often use the
Debian defaults.

If it wasn't reported as a bug in Debian, it should be. However, not
sure the Debian packagers would understand the issue... I'll look for
it in their BTS, they should at least know about it...
