I for one would not want to miss BIND9's logging to auto-rotated files:
file "/var/named/log/named.log" versions 10 size 5m;
Other than that, I'd say logging via syslog is a sane default, and it
allows people to easily forward syslog to log hosts (or Logstash, etc.).

I haven't checked whether you have that, but that screams for a CLI
utility to show the paragraph without having to browse documentation. :)
