[Snort-users] Syslog & PostgreSQL logging

I've read pleanty of back posts where people were having trouble logging
to a database and syslog.  I am actually having the opposite problem:  I
can't stop syslog logging.  The snort.conf has only a output database
plugin specification.  I'm starting snort with

/usr/local/bin/snort -b -i eth1 -d -D -c /etc/snort/snort.conf.

Snort is 1.8.7
PostgreSQL is 7.2
System is RedHat 7.3

Any idea how to turn off syslogging?  As I look at the command above, the
-b jumps out as the likely culprit.
