Your terseness did not bother me. :) Though what I found was assuredly not
in "man syslogd", your suggestion to use the "-vv" flags was nonetheless
very helpful. :) Not only does it finally tell me what facility the router
uses, but it seems the router uses a special facility just to log DoS
attacks -- which is what I was primarily interested in anyway.

So, thanks!
