My bind9 server logs queries to syslog and it produces lines like this in /var/log/syslog

Aug 23 17:25:41 serverdns named[1690]: client query: IN A + (

How can I configure the named.rb parser of glTail to parse such lines? Do I have to change my Bind9 logging configuration? Can you give me an example?
