[CentOS] CentOS 5: rsyncd log problem

I run a CentOS/Fedora mirror with rsync access.

I have the following rsyncd.conf file:

read only = true
transfer logging = true
pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log
dont compress = *

        path = /var/ftp/pub/mirrors/fedora
        comment = Fedora mirror

        path = /var/ftp/pub/mirrors/centos
        comment = CentOS mirror

My problem is that nothing gets logged into
/var/log/rsyncd.log, all logging occurs into
/var/log/messages instead.

There's no error message that /var/log/rsyncd.log
(the file doesn't exist) can't be opened.

What have I done wrong?
