FreeBSD 6.2 default bind9, question about customize logging

I am using FreeBSD 6.2 with the default bind (not ports).
By default chroot is used.

When named start or stop, it does have log in /var/log/messages.
But for example, when some do domain transfer successfully, that is not
logged (zone transfer denied is logged).

So I tried to add this part in named.conf (enabled local0.* in
syslog.conf) , but still no luck. Any suggestions?

logging {
        channel named-log {
                //syslog daemon;
                syslog local0;
                severity info;
                print-category yes;
     category default { named-log; };
     category xfer-in { named-log; };
     category xfer-out { named-log; };
     category unmatched { null; };
