Global configuration directive 'logfile'

I've been trying to get the 'logfile' configuration attribute (man5/slapd.conf.5) working but can't seem to. The relevant slapd.conf entries before I define my backend look like:

loglevel stats sync
logfile /tmp/openldap/var/log/slapd.log

and the file exists before I start slapd:

$ ls -l /tmp/openldap/var/log/slapd.log
-rw-r--r--Â 1 me mygrp 0 Mar 30 15:58 /tmp/openldap/var/log/slapd.log

SLAPD runs fine dumping information into syslog but my logfile stays zero length. How can I get my logfile to get written to also?

Thank you,

My setup:
