tcpdump is a packet capture.

post a line from the dns log.
and see what passing the line through to the command below returns.
awk ' { print $1,$2,$8,$10 } '
The $1,$2 should be the date/time, $8 IP, $10 domain  not sure MAC is included in a log from DNS

Position $1 is the time stamp
Position $2 is the source of the packet
Position $5 is the destination of the packet

This is not a log, this is a tcpdump packet revord, you can enable DNS logging
What are you after, try using rndc on your DNS server to set its logging level and see if that is the information you are after.
