It is actually always used unless Zope is started read-only. Its not easy to
follow *how* this happens - and I am still not sure *why* its done this way.

As for the how:

 ZLogger starts out with a from zLog import *,
 it then sets up the list of standard logger
 objects, and defines the log_write function.

 Later, z2.py transplants the log_write function
 from ZLogger into zLOG, where it is used by
 the implementation of zLOG.LOG (the usual 
 logging API)

Definitely yes - my syslog filled up with access log information.

A question for all syslog users; is it ever useful to send access logs to
syslog? (I can't think of good reason, but my syslog zen quotient is still
low). Is anyone else even using syslog?

Anyway, for anyone else interested, below a patch so that the configuration
of access-syslog uses different environment variables to event-syslog.
