I need to put more of my named.conf ... I have the channels
associate with category :

category security { security; };
category lame-servers { lame-servers; };
category default { systemlog; };
category unmatched { systemlog; };

Here is more example of my log which are not dropped :

As I say before, it's warnings and info and I' m on dynamic with debug
0....
