Hi all,

I'd say that even in case syslog.conf does use remote host names,
such names should (hmm, may I say "must"?) be explicitly
mentioned in /etc/hosts. Named is good and more or less stable,
but it crashes from time to time, there can be various
human mistakes that lead to unavailability of some DNS zones,
etc. Logging is the thing which should never be dependent on
these. IMHO.
