We don't. But if you need this, you should take a good look at the dnsdist
undocumented LogAction, which you would hookup like this:

addAction(AllRule(), LogAction("/var/log/dnsdist/all-queries"))

This writes out a log with minimal overhead and is thus suitable for high
performance use.

The format is currently: dnsname in native DNS format followed by 2-octet
DNS type. 

We realize this is not complete which is why we didn't document it yet. But
for your purposes, if you need high-rate output, this is the place to look.
