Defining separate contact for a single service in Nagios


We are monitoring a server for many services. All alerts are going to xyz@xyz.xom.

But for a particular service (ex: log alert) I want the mail to go to and also

For this I added the new contact in the service definition (I ofcourse defined the contact in contacts.cfg)of log which is already inheriting values of the generic service template which has contact person as

define service {
use generic-service
contact_groups contactlog
host_name ServerOne
service_description Logfiles
is_volatile 1
check_command check_winlog

So generic-service has contact email as and contactlog is

Will this setup work ?
