That's a courtesy of the leafnode documentation, because not capturing  
news logging used to be a very common problem among distributions.

Otherwise, the usual syslog configuration (/etc/syslog.conf usually) is  
the way to go. Likely using something like "news.warning" there will help;  
most syslogds I know need SIGHUP to re-read their configuration.
