That question is entirely about rsyslog and not powerdns, but in short 
you'll need something like this:

local1.* {
         # Logging for powerdns
         # facility-specific targets
         action(type="omfile" file="/var/log/pdns.log")
*        stop*

You can see some more examples at 

/("A common construct is to send messages to a remote host based on some 
message content and then not further process it")/
