NSD has no code to log requests, the way tinydns or bind can. This isn't
a bug, it's a feature. In the future, NSD might gain DNSTAP support, but
it may require a change to its internal architecture, so there's no
guarantee it will happen.

For now, you will need to capture the queries using an external tool
such as dnscap, which will handily dump the queries in a readable format
if you use the '-g' flag.
