The cron man page indicates that cron logs are handled by syslog. The syslog man page indicates that syslog is configured in syslog.conf: reading syslog.conf shows no special entry for cron (there is but it is commented out), thus you should be able to find cron logs in /var/log/syslog.

Cheers,

Evo2.
