For "normal" logging, you need to consider the syslog aspect.

This configures what gets logged to syslog. How syslog deals with it is up to 
your syslog configuration.

$ PAGER=cat man slapd.conf|grep -A4 "logfile <"
       logfile <filename>
              Specify a file for recording  debug  log  messages.  By  default
              these  messages  only go to stderr and are not recorded anywhere
              else. Specifying a logfile copies messages to  both  stderr  and
              the logfile.

I believe this is only for use with the -d flag to slapd.

What is your slapd command-line? LOCAL4 is the default facility. Does the 
directory that should hold the log file you specified in syslog.conf exist? Can 
you provide the relevant parts of your syslog.conf?
