Your method reminds me that I wanted to take a look at rsyslog filters
for a while now. It's the default syslog daemon in Debian Lenny, I just
never used its advanced features before.

This is what I use with BIND and rsyslog now:

$AddUnixListenSocket /var/cache/bind/dev/log   # inside chroot
:msg, contains, ": view authoritative: query: "
:msg, contains, ": view recursive-local: query: "
