Pretty simple:
use the local policy or GPO to configure auditing

For local:
gpedit.msc
browse to Computer Config\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Audit Policy

Enable Auditing for "Audit Logon Events".

Any logons will then be logged in the security log.

This is a domain controller, does this matter?

Yes, that does matter.
In this case you can do the same in the "Default Domain Controllers" Policy in Active Directory.
