syslog logging question

Hi all,

I have ipfilter on some of my boxes. In /etc/syslog.conf, I have the
following lines:

*.*                                             /var/log/ipf.log

This works, and I get all entries in /var/log/ipf.log, which is good.
The problem I have is that I also get all entries in /var/log/messages

What do I need to do to stop syslog logging these messages to both
locations and start logging only to /var/log/ipf.log ?
