Ah, ok.  I didn’t understand where you are trying to get to in the end.  It does use stdout if you don’t send the content off to a certain location.  I take it that you have a script you’ve written that prints?  I’m asking since Bro doesn’t print much to stdout or stderr by default I don’t immediately see the utility of redirecting those to syslog.

The implementation for the print statement can be found in Stmt.cc around line 259.
