  radrelay copies accounting packets, not authentication packets.  In
FreeRADIUS, the "Login OK" message appears in radius.log ONLY when the
server sends an Access-Accept.

  In any case, the radius.log file is informative, not definitive.  If
you're using it for any purpose other than having admins occasionally
reading it, that's wrong.  You should be looking at the accounting logs
to see what the users are really doing.
