Replying to my own post.

I had tried kill -HUP xxx where xxx was the pid number of syslog
task
And still logger did not work

When an task is HUPed does that change the task number? Or is the
task just signaled to re-init it's self?

Rebooted system and logger works as documented now.
Have no idea why it was hosed, but working now and that is all that
matters.

So I have an typo in my post.
I did look in /var/log/lpd-errs and it's  empty.

Any help as what to do to figure this out?

That would be /var/log/lpd-errs.

That's a pretty big conclusion from a small test.  Like the old "my
program doesn't work, so it must be a bug in the compiler" jump.
You
are just looking for results in the wrong place.  It's also possible
that you have syslog set to not log that type of error.

It works.
