You're mistaken: within the syslogger process, stderr doesn't point to
the same place as the target file (it's normally the same as the
original postmaster stderr).  The reason the code is set up to try to
write both stderr and the target file is to maximize the chance that an
internally generated error in syslogger will get reported *someplace*.
