Hmm It does not play nicely with syslog only parameter (which is how I noted
it in first place).

If anybody sets syslog only, he probably has good reasons to do it. If I
need to debug running smbd and syslog only is set, debug output is simply
lost. What about changing it to

if (!lp_syslog_only() && syslog_level < lp_syslog()) ?

I know :)
