http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/logs.html     Log Files - Apache HTTP Server
"The server access log records all requests processed by the server."

My experience has been that it records & so updates on each access. You can test this using filemon (use the filter option to record only writes to your access log): http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/Filemon.html

callrs is correct;  as part of the process of delivering content, the Apache webserver logs information to the access_log for each and every request PROVIDED that conditional logging has not been enabled.  See:
