Windows 2003 Active Directory with Azure/PhoneFactor 2 stage auth log for failed login

We just installed Windows Azure (was PhoneFator) and integrated it with Windows 2003 Active Directory.  We succeeded in enabling 2-stage SMS text-based authentication with Azure (yay!).  I used to be able to see all AD login rejections in RRAS logs but that is no longer occurring.  

I can see 2-stage auth failures in the Azure logs for actual user failures that are configured with 2 stage authentication.  I can see non-user (fake names like 'abc') attempts logged there as well.

What I cannot see in any log is when a user that is *not* configured to use 2 stage authentication has a failed login attempt.

Does anyone know where that log entry might be found?

Hi,
by default users not configured for auth will authenticate successfully, make sure that ou disable this on users' properties.

Thanks for your response.  We have one user who cannot use the 2 stage auth for a while, so they will need to remain as not configured to use 2 stage for now.  They will still need to present their password as previous.  My question was in regard to where I can find failed attempts for this special case of not using 2 stage auth since I am able to see the other 2 cases already of users with 2 stage auth enabled  and undefined users ( such as a fake user 'abc').  

I did figure out my own resolution.  There are 2 logs in Azure/PhoneFactor that when combined will contain all 3 categories of failures:
c:\Program Files\Multi-Factor Authentication Server\Logs\MultiFactorAuthRadiusSvc.log
c:\Program FIles\Multi-Factor Authentication Server\Logs\MultiFactorAuthSvc.log

Thanks!
