Samba uses the LOG_DAEMON facility by default.  We usually change this to
LOG_LOCAL7 so we can separate samba logs from everything else.

Look in source/include/local.h:


Then tell syslog to log it somewhere else in /etc/syslog.conf:

local7.info	/var/log/samba-log/samba-log
local7.none	/var/adm/messages

Hope this helps...
