By default dnsdist will only export the content of A and AAAA resource 
records, and CNAME records can be included as well using the 
'includeCNAME' parameter of the RemoteLogResponseAction action, but 
other record types are not supported.
If you are looking at exporting the reply sent to the client, perhaps 
dnstap [1][2] would be more suited to your needs?
