You can set it all up in the config file.  For example:

output alert_full: snort.alert
output syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT

and if you want to log to a binary file:

output log_tcpdump: snort.log

You don't need to specify any output at the command line if you put both
a logging and alerting plugins in the config file.  NOte that you can
also specify multiple alerting or logging plugins (i.e. stack them)
without any ill effects.  It's definitely not necessary to run two
