Error in "31.5 The IPFILTER (IPF) Firewall"

"31.5.7 IPMON Logging" states:

IPMON in -Ds mode uses security as the “facility” name.

This is not correct.  

ipmon(8) states:

-L <facility>
  Using this option allows you to change the default syslog facil-
  ity that ipmon uses for syslog messages.  The default is local0.

Using security.* in syslogd.conf will result in a log file that is never written to, whereas local0.* works as expected.
