redirecting log messages to /dev/console


The output of the cat ttys on a free BSD m/c

console none unknown off secure
# Serial terminals
# The 'dialup' keyword identifies dialin lines to login, fingerd etc.
ttyd0 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" unknown on secure
ttyd1 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" dialup off
ttyd2 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" unknown off
ttyd3 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" unknown off
# Pseudo terminals
ttyp0 none network secure
ttyp1 none network secure
ttyp2 none network secure
ttyp3 none network secure
ttyp4 none network secure
ttyp5 none network secure
ttyp6 none network secure
ttyp7 none network secure
ttyp8 none network secure
ttyp9 none network secure

If I login to m/c's console using using pty command, what would /dev/console be mapped to. If I issue a ls command, I see that it is of size zero and it is not linked to /dev/tty's. Now if I want to redirect my log messages to the console and I edit my syslog.conf file to write the log messages to /dev/console, where would the messages get redirected.

Thanks in advance,
