No, you just get the defaults as described in the ARM 6.2.10

"Only one logging statement is used to define as many channels and 
categories as are wanted. If there is
no logging statement, the logging configuration will be:
logging {
       category default { default_syslog; default_debug; };
       category unmatched { null; };

The rest of 6.2.10 shows the syntax and provides the ability to "roll" the 
logs much as (r)syslogd.conf does for those that syslog gets.  None of my 
named logs go to syslog as I do have a logging statement of my choices.
