This is totally in your syslog config.  You should be able to adjust what
happens to the "local6" facility to control this.

SASL also logs some things to the "auth" facility.

At CMU, we use:

mail.debug      /var/log/maillog
mail.err        /var/log/mail.err
local6.notice   /var/log/cyrus.log
local6.err      /var/log/cyrus.err
local7.notice   /var/log/ptloader.log
auth.notice     /var/log/auth.log
