I believe it is a bad idea since formatting the log can take some
server's resources. BIND is not an example to follow, with its
tendency to overbloat (and, even them, the log is not complete, it is
only queries, not answers).

IMHO, this is better done outside of the name servers, with programs
like DNSmezzo <http://www.dnsmezzo.net/> or PacketQ.
