How to prevent BIND from resolving addresses in logs

I just installed BIND 9.9.1-P3 from source and while looking through the query log files I noticed that IP addresses were being resolved:

27-Sep-2012 12:01:56.512 client ( query: ...

In my other servers which are running the redhat packaged version of BIND (9.8.2), my query logs look like:

27-Sep-2012 14:04:03.523 client query: ...

The logging section of the configuration looks like:

channel query_log {
   file "/var/log/queries/query-log" versions 100 size 1m;
   print-time yes;

category queries {

I'm sure there's something completely obvious that I've missed.  How do I stop BIND from resolving these addresses and just including the IP address in the log file?
