I found the place to update the documentation:

https://github.com/PowerDNS/pdns/pull/8298 (already merged, nice!)

I'm almost certain that I can do it through a remoteLogger and 
RemoteLogAction, but I'd much rather just log locally to stdout. I still 
haven't found a good way to do that.

Best regards,
