The docs:

If LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST is not explicitly defined and all the LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n parameters have null string values, LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST is set to an operating system-specific default value on instance startup.

>>"which directory is good for that....

Pick one.  There is no hard and fast rule on where they go.

Typically you want them in the same basic folder structure that your other database files are.  You also want to try to get them on different disks so writing to them doesn't interfere with normal database activity.
