[dnsdist] DNSDIST syslog

Hi all,

on Centos 8 I'm trying to configure dnsdist to write logs to disk, in the documentation I found that I have to fix the systemd file and set Syslog Facility in pdns so I made this changes:

  ExecStart=/usr/bin/dnsdist -u dnsdist -g dnsdist -supervised

systemctl daemon-reload

mkdir /var/log/dnsdist

  local0.*                       -/var/log/dnsdist/dnsdist-info.log


systemctl restart rsyslog
systemctl restart dnsdist

But no .log files are written to disk, I see only dnsdist logs in /var/log/messages

Someone is using rsyslog or can help me identifying what's wrong?

Thanks to all!
