It's logfile, which google reveals to be a valid portmanteau, despite my dislike for it.

Just looking at the code, there's some slightly weird behaviour which i'm going to fix now. If no section logfile was specified it'd default to the main logfile.

This would of mean that if you just wanted to log autz queries, you have to specify logfiles for acct and post-auth.

The new logic just uses the logfile associated with the section. If you want to log autz queries, use logfile in the main sql instance section, if you want to log acct queries, use logfile in accounting, if you want to log post-auth queries use logfile in post-auth.

If you want to use the same logfile for everything, reference it from acct and post-auth.

I'll double check the default configs to make sure they list it and update the documentation.

Thanks for reporting this.
