This is an rsyslog issue, not a pdns issue.

You probably have /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf containing

*.*;auth,authpriv.none          -/var/log/syslog

which says "log everything to /var/log/syslog, except auth and authpriv"

To fix this, you should put your rules in an earlier file, say 
/etc/rsyslog.d/30-pdns.conf, with instructions not to let the messages 
progress to later rules.  I think this should work:

local5.=info                     -/var/log/pdns/pdns.info <http://pdns.info>
local5.=warn -/var/log/pdns/pdns.warn
local5.err  /var/log/pdns/pdns.err
local5.* stop

If not, I'm sure this will:

local5.=info                     -/var/log/pdns/pdns.info 
<http://pdns.info> & stop local5.=warn                     
-/var/log/pdns/pdns.warn & stop local5.err                       
  /var/log/pdns/pdns.err & stop
