Seems unlikely, I'd think it would be a function of syslog.conf. I'm trying to learn more about it but I'm swamped this am, just thought I'd post here to see if anyone knows a quick way to exclude named from the syslog completely.

Logging queries to syslog is not on by default (in ISC distributed BIND), so something is doing it.

Send us your logging stanza...

(And yes, I'm absolutely sure that logging queries to syslog is handled by named.conf)
